What To Expect
Relive the rich historic, romantic, and majestic history of New York's icon, the Empire State Building, and the rest of the Big Apple. 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.
Enjoy an unforgettable Multimedia Experience Audio tour that will guide you through the icon's spectacular views and extraordinary exhibits including the Sustainability Exhibit and the Dare to Dream Exhibit!
Until you see New York from the top of the Empire State Building, you haven't seen New York. 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. You will always remember your first visit to the Empire State Building.
