Head to the Top of the Rock for the best bird’s eye view of NYC

The local consensus is that the views from the Top of the Rock are better than those from the Empire State building, in part because the Empire State is part of the skyline here. You’re also afforded with a bird’s eye view of the tops of the Citicorp and Chrysler Buildings and sweeping views northward to Central Park and south to the Statue of Liberty.
