Hey y’all! Another Friday is here! Whoop, whoop!! Do you have any great plans for the weekend? I’m looking forward to relaxing and enjoying time with my family. In the meantime, I’m back to share my favorite place in New York City, Top of the Rock!
When people ask me what are musts in New York City, Top of the Rock is always at the top of my list! No pun intended! Top of the Rock is the observation deck at Rockefeller Center in Rockefeller Plaza. You know? The place with the famous Christmas tree! So not only can you ice skate, shop, and dine at Rockefeller Plaza, but you can catch the best views of the city from Rockefeller Center! Top of the Rock, in my opinion, has better views than the Empire State Building. I love that there aren’t crazy lines, at least the several times I have visited, and that you can see views of the Empire State Building on one side and Central Park on the other.
I also recommend visiting twice, once during the day and once after dark. It is incredible to see the difference. During the day, you see a concrete jungle. At night, you see an incredible light show. Both have their own beauty. Another bit I love is you can see the stunning St. Patrick’s Cathedral, along with other buildings, from a whole new angle. But there is just something about the beautiful of St. Patrick’s from above and below.
Anyhow, I hope you enjoyed our visit to Top of the Rock, and I hope you’ll take my advice and add it to your NYC itinerary. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
