One of the best views of New York City is from Top Of The Rock NYC. Built 1933 Rockefeller Center is one of the finest examples of art deco architecture in the city and it features breathtaking views of the Empire State Building and Central Park. On a clear day you can see for miles to Queens, Brooklyn, and New Jersey! Here's a 360 video tour of the 3 levels of the observation deck and an explation of the various views we see. Pro-tip: come on a weekday around 1:00pm for minimal wait time.
