No visit to New York City is complete without a stop at the iconic Empire State Building.
And now visitors will be able to enjoy an even more spectacular experience, as part of the tower’s revamped 102nd-floor observatory.
The renovated observatory, which is located on the highest floor of the building, now offers unobstructed views of the city from a height of 1,250 feet (381 meters).

The upgrades to the building include the addition of 24-crystal clear, mammoth-sized windows, standing at eight-feet tall.
The new observatory features 360-degree views of the Hudson and East rivers, the World Trade Center and Chrysler Building, Central Park, and beyond, right from the heart of New York City.
“The 102nd-floor Observatory is the crown jewel of the Empire State Building. We’ve removed all the obstructions and obstacles, giving guests access to a view that is centrally-located and unrivalled in New York City,” said Anthony E. Malkin, chairman and CEO of Empire State Realty Trust.
“The Observatory Entrance and the second-floor galleries have been embraced by our visitors, and the 102nd floor’s reopening is a major moment in our progress to complete the new Empire State Building Observatory Experience.”
The revamped observatory will open to the public on Saturday, October 12.
