I’m not talking about the Empire State Building.
I’m a strong believer that, although yes, it is great to go up iconic buildings (for example, the Eiffel Tower, the London Eye…) but it is never the best view of the city.
If you’re looking for that picture perfect moment in that iconic city, then what’s the point if you can’t see the most iconic building in view?That’s why, during my long visit to the bustling city of New York, we went to the Rockefeller Centre (aka Top of the Rock) for one of the best views in the world.
Not only can you view the Empire State Building towering over the other skyscrapers, but you get the perfect view of Central Park…
There are numerous viewing points/floors, too, so you get the best experience.
My highlight was climbing right to the top and getting an open air view of the entire, spectacular city, without any glass hindering the scenery.
So sure, head up to the Empire State Building for the experience. But head up to the Rockefeller Centre for the best view of all.
