Empire State Building Observatory Ticket, The USA

New York's famous Empire State Building, a National Historic Landmark, soars more than a quarter of a mile into the atmosphere above the heart of Manhattan.

Located on the 86th floor, 1,050 feet (320 metres) above the city's bustling streets, the Observatory offers panoramic views from within a glass-enclosed pavilion and from the surrounding open-air promenade.

Since the Observatory opened to the public in 1931, almost 110 million visitors have marvelled at the awe-inspiring vision of the city beneath them.

Each year over three and a half million people are transported to the 86th floor to marvel at the surrounding city views.
