About this New York tour
Experience the most incredible view from 86 stories on an Empire State Building tour! Accessible to the public since 1931, it has become one of the top attractions in New York City. Some of the most memorable movie scenes have been filmed atop the iconic Art Deco structure including 1933’s King Kong, An Affair to Remember, and Sleepless in Seattle. On this tour, prepare for a breathtaking panoramic sight of one of the best cities in the world.
Travel to the 86th floor on high-speed, automatic elevators. Upon arrival, you can choose to go in the glass-enclosed area or tour the outdoor promenades located on all four sides of the building. The glass-enclosed area is heated during the winter and kept cool during the summer, so your experience is of the utmost comfort. Binoculars are available for purchase for your convenience.
Besides the observation deck, the Empire State Building offers other activities for visitors. There are two restaurants, a sushi bar, three coffee shops, a drug store, a Hallmark gift store, a post office, and two banks. Before you leave, be sure to tour the art exhibits located on the ground floor. There are also King Kong memorabilia from actress Fay Wray’s private collection including film posters and photographs.
