Top of the Rock

When planning your  trip to NYC, Top of the Rock Observation Deck should be at the top of your list. You’ll be 70 floors up, with both indoor and outdoor viewing decks that offer breathtaking 360-degree views of the city. And, because you’re right in the heart of Rockefeller Center, you’ll be able to enjoy the best shopping, dining, and entertainment in Midtown as well. We look forward to welcoming you back to Top of the Rock as of August 6th. Our new hours are from 1–9pm, 7 days a week. The first elevator goes up at 1pm, the last one at 8:10pm (hours of operation may vary on holidays) and we have a new set of safety and cleaning procedures to keep our guests safe:

Entry and Check-in

  • Designating lobby entrances and exits—guests will only enter at the south side of 50th Street between 5th and 6th avenues
  • Conducting temperature screenings for all guests upon entry
  • Implementing touchless check-in
  • Minimizing the need for guests to touch surfaces such as doors and elevator buttons
  • Limiting each elevator cab to no more than four people or a single party

Our Staff

  • Requiring face coverings and gloves for all employees and third-party vendors in public areas
  • Checking the temperature of all staff before they enter the building


  • Enhancing cleaning and disinfecting protocols
  • Cleaning our frequently touched surfaces with increased regularity and rigor
  • Utilizing antiviral disinfectant cleaners recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Installing touchless hand sanitizer dispensers throughout

Air Filtration

  • Maximizing outside air intake in HVAC systems, as recommended by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air- Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)
  • Cleaning and disinfecting coils and air inlet chambers for all HVAC units
  • Upgrading air filters to the maximum allowable filtration specifications
  • Refreshing indoor air with outside air four times each hour
