  • Very impressive to have a view of New York City. Only downside: fingerprints on the tiles, there is a great deal!

  • Well worth going up to the 102nd floor to see the fabulous views of New York. There is a great cafe at the top. The elevator moves so quickly it takes no time at all.  more »
  • Not to be missed to see New York from atop and at the place where the twin towers were. I advise and nearby there is a Century 21 outlet.

  • $37 to go to the top. The elevator ride was amazing, and then as soon as u get off you watch a neat video with a huge surprise ending! After that you are lead out to the observatory that has a complete 360 degree view of the city! There is no set time limit so you are free to explore and take all the photos and videos you want! Just make sure you go up when the sky is clear so u can maximize your view. Worth every penny I promise. Be sure to take the underground tunnel towards the underground mall after you go back down, the architecture and atmosphere is really neat and beautiful.
  • Amazing presentation. I won't be a spoiler, but it's the best $XX [whatever they're charging now] you'll spend for an observation desk. Eat / hydrate beforehand, once you're up there, they charge an arm and a leg for bottled water and other dishes - and for the souvenirs - because you're a captive audience. But once you get past the security screening, the presentation is great and I don't want to describe it to you - you just have to see it. Watch, look at, the video walls in the elevator, especially the one in back (opposite the doors) so you know what you're looking at. Pay attention to the presentation, especially if it's you're first time and you will love it.
  • Iconic place that is probably on every visitors to do list. 9/11 memorial and observatory are well worth the visit. I do have a bit of an issue with the place trying a bit to hard to sell something to the visitor. Besides the not authorized sellers trying to sell booklets to tourists (not sure where police is looking and why the won't clean it up), on your visit to observatory workers will push on upselling to you paid pictures or audio/video guide. I understand the notion, but administration need to work on better organizing this so it does not look forced on people.
  • The well organized team makes the entrance line go by fast. Highly recommend to purchase tickets in advance, so you get in right away. The tower is beautiful and the views amazing. You can rent an iPad $15 or 2x20 and learn the facts of the most important places. I loved it!!!
  • Taking the tour to the top is definitely worth it. The elevator ride and the intro video when you get to the top is done very nicely. Amazing view of Manhattan, New Jersey, Brooklyn and the Statue of Liberty. You can also see the Empire State Building in the distance but the Rockefeller building would give you a better view of the Empire State.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
