The Empire State Building is one of NY's most iconic buildings, and perhaps even of the whole world. It's the third tallest building in the Big Apple, just behind the One World Trade Center and 432 Park Avenue. Its shape is the most recognizable one in New York's Skyline and it offers amazing and unique views of the city from its terrace. You can't leave New York without seeing the city from it!
The Empire State Building is 381 meters high and has 102 floors. Tourists can only access the 86th and the top floors, where viewpoints are located. Climbing to the top isn't cheap, and although you pay $50 it's really worth it. Visiting hours are from 8am to approximately 1:15am. You can buy tickets in advance online and we highly recommend you to do so to avoid long queues.
