New Views: Top of the Rock

May 31, 2023

Among the many attractions that dot New York City’s skyline, one stands out for its awe-inspiring vistas and unique perspective on the Big Apple: Top of the Rock Observation Deck.

Located at the summit of the historic Rockefeller Center, Top of the Rock offers visitors an unforgettable experience, allowing them to soar above the city and witness its splendor from a truly extraordinary vantage point.

Your group gets an awe-inspiring 360-degree view from 70 floors up, with 9,500 square feet of unobstructed viewing space, the most of any NYC observatory. And for anyone scared of heights, there’s plenty of great views from inside as well.

The Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Central Park, Times Square, the Hudson River, all five boroughs—the skyline is in full view here, a great opportunity to talk to your students about the other experiences you have planned and point them out from a new perspective.

Top of the Rock, along with all of Rockefeller Center, also features incredible art, from murals to sculptures and interactive exhibitions. The current exhibition, “New Frontiers,” invites you to experience a cultural offering of classic and contemporary New York art via a dynamic exhibition representing innovative kinetic sculpture and interactive art.

This includes a photograph opportunity that will become part of a lasting collage on the building’s 67th floor, a mesmerizing audio-visual installation in the mezzanine, and an interactive kinetic sculpture.

As Rockefeller Center puts it, “Every visitor reinvents this exhibition and pushes the horizon further. You are the new frontiers. You are the makers, the shapers, the dreamers, the observers, the thinkers, the travelers. You honor Rockefeller Center’s original purpose to redefine form and promote beauty. There is no better place to gaze out and imagine new frontiers than Top of the Rock.”

The art can be experienced throughout your time at Top of the Rock and is included with all tickets. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more – contact the group sales team at 877-692-7625 or [email protected].
