Manhattan | New York City

the view from top of the rock towards the empire state building and downtown manhattan in new york city

The 70th floor observatory, known as Top of the Rock, at the Rockefeller Centre in  Midtown Manhattan offers some of the best views that you can find of New York City. This shot was taken late on a sunny September afternoon, looking towards downtown with the Empire State building dominating the view.

The Rockefeller Centre was built between 1930 and 1939 by the famous New York businessman John D. Rockefeller and covers 22 acres of the Midtown area of Manhattan. The art deco style complex is one of the most popular attractions in New York City and has featured in many films and televisions shows over the years. Situated between 48th and 51st streets, and Fifth and Sixth Avenue, it is ideally placed to offer great views of Manhattan Island and beyond.
