It is 443 m high and 102 story skyscraper building. The observatory is on levels 86 and 102.
I would like to explain you Top Deck on 102nd floor. You need to buy an extra admission ticket for Top Deck at the ticket machine on 86th floor.
The height of observatory 60m higher that is same height as One World Observatory. The observation deck is tiny for only 20 people. Admission may be restricted when the observatory is crowded.
The deck is pretty dark, it gives good adult atmosphere.
It is the most crowded observatory in New York, but you can check up wait time on their official website in real time.
Steps for all visitors in Empire State Building is go through security check -> Ticket Counter -> Queue for lift. Then, there is a special option ‘VIP Main Deck Express Experience’ which make guests to skip security check and waiting line for elevator. Please be careful you must purchase this before you visit there, if not, it makes only pass for Elevator queue.
