See Central Park, the Statue of Liberty and the Chrysler Building from the Empire State Building's 86th-floor observation deck. The 2-floor deck (both open-air and enclosed) gives you a chance to look out on all 5 of New York's boroughs as well as 4 other states.

As you skip the ticket lines with your Express Admission Pass, admire this Art Deco masterpiece, which was built during the Great Depression and has stood as a symbol of the enduring strength of the city for more than 90 years. Take the lift to the 86th floor and step onto the outdoor deck to feel the rush of wind from 1,050 feet (320 m) above the ground.

Toss in some quarters and use the on-site binoculars to help you see across the harbour to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Circle around the observation deck and view the city in its full 360-degree glory, which includes architectural masterpieces like the Chrysler and Flatiron buildings. Don't forget to pose for some pictures as you feel like you're standing on the top of New York City.
