✓ Skip the ticket line and get up to this 70th-floor observation deck and drink in panoramic views of the city that never sleeps, from Central Park to the Empire State Building.
✓ Not only does it boast a modern and spacious observation deck, designed to resemble a cruise ship’s, but it also offers you something that the Empire State Building’s own deck doesn’t: a view of the Empire State Building!
✓ 30 Rock itself has been a quintessential part of New York since even before it was completed in 1933.
✓ Remember that picture of a group of construction workers having lunch on a steel beam? Yep, it was taken here.
✓ The venerable Rainbow Room, where the rich and famous used to hang out and everyone else failed to get a table, is also here.
