The Fine Print
About Empire State Building
Bus tours and cab rides wind around New York City, shuttling out-of-town visitors from Central Park to the Brooklyn Bridge to Times Square to the Statue of Liberty—the Big Apple can seem too big to take in, especially all in one bite. The Empire State Building's observation deck brings NY natives and guests alike above the sprawling metropolis to the famous 86th floor, all for one sweeping view of the city. The site of dozens of famous movie and television scenes, the Observation Deck wraps around the building's spire for 360 degree views from the city's highest open air observatory.
