Top of the Rock Observation Deck Attractions

The Top of the Rock Observation Deck is more than a great view of the city. When you first arrive at the building, you will love the welcome area. The Joie Chandelier hangs in the atrium lobby and covers three full floors. Swarovski designed the spectacular “Joie” that you will probably want a few pictures of.

When you pass through the Mezzanine Exhibit, you will see a collection of artifacts and photos that depict the history of Rockefeller Center and the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. While you are browsing photos, make sure to glance at the Beam Walk. This is the famous image taken of construction workers eating their lunch on the Beam. Along with the photo, there is an Interactive Beam Walk for interested guests.

When you arrive at the top, you will see the Radiance Wall. This is an amazing glass panel wall created out of crystal clusters, mouth-blown glass, and fiber-optic lighting.

While at the top, you can also visit the Breezeway Step. This room provides a unique and interactive experience for guests. You will be assigned a color and the lights from that color will follow you as you walk.

There are several places to take in the views, including an outdoor space and an indoor space. When you are outside, you can use binoculars to browse the unobstructed views on the 67th, 69th, and 70th floors. If you prefer the indoors, you can relax on the 67th floor and gaze out of windows that stretch from the floor to the celling.
