Top of the Rock
This is a must when in New York. Katrina and I went to the Rockefeller Center and the Top of the Rock to get a view of the city. The view from the Top of the Rock is just amazing. We picked a great day to go, the sky was clear and the sun was shining. In my opinion; the view from the Top of the Rock is far greater than that from the Empire State Building. You have a great view over Central Park, downtown Manhattan and all the suburbs. Even though Empire State Building may be higher, the view isn’t as good as from the Top of the Rock. The main reason for this, in my opinion, is that you can’t see Central Park from there. Moreover, from the Top of the Rock, you have the Empire State Building in your view, which you obviously don’t have from the Empire.
