Visiting NYC Observation Decks - to see NYC from the top is a must, right now visitors have several optios to do it, rooftop bars can be a good option to catch a break with skyline sights around you, but best views in the heart of NYC are from Top of the Rock Observation Deck. Being on the 69th floor makes you feel like you are in the middle of it and with 3 observation levels you can really look around. There is a great view on Central Park, which is obstructed when looking from ESB and possibly the best view on Empire State Building.  


For the best Downtown Experience visit One World Observatory - standard admission is $34 and grants access to all Observatory floors (Levels 100 - 102). One World Observatory has best views on the Statue of Liberty - on a clear day you can see for 50 miles beyond NYC's iconic landmarks buildings and waterways. This experiance should be a must on your NYC Downtown itinerary
