Our main deck observatory on the 86th floor has been the setting for dozens of movie and television scenes, as well as tens of millions of unforgettable moments.

The open-air observation deck wraps around the building’s spire, providing 360-degree views of New York, Brooklyn, Queens, and beyond. On the clearest days, this unforgettable view spans six states, offering glimpses of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Delaware.
