Admire Amazing Views of NYC from Atop the Empire State Building

A world-famous icon and a study in art deco architecture, the Empire State Building is a must-visit during any visit to New York City. Scraping the sky at 102 stories high, the historic Empire State Building offers some of the best views of Manhattan.

 

Located in Midtown Manhattan on 34th Street, a 20-minute walk from Hotel Edison, the Empire State Building has two observation decks that are open to visitors, an open-air deck on the 86th Floor (the highest in New York!), and an enclosed observatory on the 102nd Floor. You'll enjoy 360-degree views of New York City and beyond, including Central Park, the Hudson River, and the Statue of Liberty.
