Watch the Sunset from Top of the Rock
New York › 30 Rockefeller
Added by Rob Witt
Take in incredible, unobstructed views of Manhattan. This is a perfect for sunset photography.
There aren't any mountain peaks to summit in New York City, but the view from the top of the Rockefeller Building is the next best thing. You'll have to pay a few bucks ($29 to be exact) and deal with some tourists but you won't regret your decision once you're looking out over one of the most iconic city skylines in the world. Practice your landscape, sunset, and night photography so you're ready on your next adventure out of the city.
Check out the Top of the Rock website for more information on tickets.

Also check out One World Observatory!
I know the Observatory is inside, but it is definitely also an amazing view of the city skyline for those visiting! While you're there, walk around the trade center memorial and soak it all in. It is quite an unbelievable, architectural beauty.
