      An dem Tag unseres Besuchs war es sehr wolkig. Man hat uns Angeboten einen anderen Tag zu nehmen. Wir waren trotzdem oben und haben es nicht bereut. Tolle Aussicht nettes Personal. Als Photograph macht man Bilder natürlich gerne zur blauen Stunde mit Stativ. As Sicherheitsgründen ist die wie auch auf "The Edge" nicht erlaubt. Auf the Rock kann man die Kamera jedoch auf der oberen Aussichtplattform auf Steinblöcke legen und tolle Bilder machen.

      This time it should be top of the rocks in the day. If you're lucky, go to the Rockefeller Center to see what time is feasible. We were there at 10.30 in the morning and you still have to exchange the voucher for tickets. But that worked without any problems, so we were incredibly lucky with few people in front of us, if we waited 5 minutes, and off we went. So because you still have to exchange tickets, you should leave early in the day, otherwise you will be in the eternal beats at the ticket counter. And Top of the Rock, madness again, Manhattan in bright sunshine, fantastic.

      Best viewing platform in New York! This voucher must be redeemed for a ticket - it is best to go there and get the ticket on the first day. The ticket is then for a certain day and a certain time, where there are no longer any waiting times. Spontaneously does not work here.
