Empire State Building Observatory Tickets
See the most visited NYC attraction! The Empire State Building, a New York City Landmark and a National Historic Landmark, soars more than a quarter of a mile into the atmosphere above the heart of Manhattan.

The 86th floor Empire State Building Observatory, at 1,050 feet (320 meters), offers panoramic views from within a glass enclosed pavilion and from the surrounding open-air promenade. The building is not only an awe-inspiring NYC landmark, which offers one of the most spectacular views on earth, but an unequaled symbol of American ingenuity and Art Deco architecture.
Since the Observatory opened to the public in 1931, almost 100 million visitors have thrilled to the awe-inspiring vision of New York City beneath them. High powered binoculars are available on the promenades at a minimal cost. Souvenir counters are also located in the 86th floor observatory. The 86th floor observatory is handicap accessible.
Ticket purchase lines at the Empire State Building can be lengthy - you should avoid the line by buying tickets in advance. When you purchase admission tickets from the NYC Ticket Machine you get official Empire State Building tickets sent to you - not a voucher that requires another line!

FREE tickets to the Observatory are available for Group Escorts - one FREE TICKET for every 20 purchased!
Visitors with tickets purchased online will go directly to the elevator waiting area, bypassing the ticket line after passing through the security check.

Admission can be FREE when you book any NYCVP Vacation Package!

The Empire State Building Observatory is open daily - rain or shine - from 8am-2am, with the last elevator going up at 1:15am.

Empire State Building Observatory

A View from the Top
Take in the full view of the City by riding up to the top of the Empire State Building. Open from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday - Friday and 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. on Sundays, you can start your day off with an impeccable sight or catch the sun as it sets over Manhattan. Because this is a very popular tourist spot, the ticket line tends to get extremely long. If you are not one who takes to wasting time in line, you can order your Empire State Building ticket in advance with NYCVP. An admission ticket from NYCVP grants you permission to cut the line for the ticket booth, and advance to the elevator before everyone else. The first elevator goes up 80 stories, then you can choose to walk up 6 flights of stairs, or stand in line for the second elevator. However you choose to climb to the 86th floor Observatory, it will be worth it. The 360 degree view of New York City is breathtaking. Make sure you bring your camera for some gorgeous shots of the island!
