Empire State Building Observatory
Until you see New York from the top of the Empire State Building, you haven’t seen New York. Soaring more than a quarter of a mile into the sky above the heart of Manhattan, the 86th Floor Observatory offers 360 degree panoramic views from both a glass-enclosed pavilion and a spacious open-air promenade. Remodeled from top to bottom in 2009, millions of people from around the world visit the Observatory each year. Many come for the endless spectacular views, while others come to relive cinematic moments from movies such as King Kong, An Affair to Remember and Sleepless in Seattle. Relive the rich historic, romantic, and majestic history of this New York icon and the rest of the Big Apple. Whatever the reason that brings you here, you will always remember your visit to the Empire State Building.
