Magical views from the Empire State Building

Empire State Building situated at 350 5th Avenue and 34th Street is the world most famous office building. Its 86th floor is open for the visitors to get the best views of New York City from 1,050 feet (320 m). Just 200 feet (almost 61 m) above it there is the 102th floor where you can get if you pay more. Both Observatories were open in 1931 and around 4 million people visit them every year. They are open from 8 am to 2 am every day with the last elevator going up at 1.15 am.

Being one of the New York City’s top attractions, there are long Q’s for the tickets and elevators. My recommendation is to get CityPASS - a pass for 6 main New York City attractions at 46% of the admission price, including the entrance to Empire State Building. You not only save money on the entrances but you skip the lines, too. And you get a free audio tour with it to find out more about the history of Manhattan and the name of the sights you see from the Empire State Building. It took me just around 15 minutes to get up to the 86th floor Observatory with CityPASS.

I so enjoyed panoramic 360 views of Manhattan and as well New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Delaware (only on a clear day). Empire State Building is one of those touristy places you just have to visit!

Hope you experience the magical views I saw at least through my photos :)

    Oh yes, that is exactly my reason all the time to revisit the same place again cos I didn’t see there everything I wanted to :D

  16. I regret not going to Empire State, I missed the awesome sunset view in the Hudson. This calls for another trip to NYC I guess!:)

  18. Just like the CN Tower, even though the Empire State building isn’t the tallest, and hasn’t been for a looong time, I still think it’s like the king of all buildings!
