Explore New Frontiers and Panoramic Views of NYC!

At Top of the Rock Observation Deck in New York City, groups will find themselves immersed in an unforgettable setting: 360-degree unobstructed views of all of NYC’s most notable landmarks and iconic skyline, all from 70 floors up!

Offering three indoor and outdoor observation decks, Top of the Rock is ideal for groups who are looking for a way to see NYC from a whole new perspective. With terraces facing east, west, north and south, Top of the Rock delivers panoramic views of the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Central Park and all five boroughs—a spectacular sight unseen anywhere else.

In addition, groups can enjoy having some space to spread out while enjoying the view, with Top of the Rock’s outdoor viewing space clocking in at 9,500 square feet—the largest of any observatory in New York City. 

While visiting, groups won’t want to miss Top of the Rock’s current exhibition, aptly named New Frontiers, which embodies what Rockefeller Center was founded on: Innovation based on a dream to breathe new life into midtown Manhattan. This limited-time, must-see exhibit invites groups to experience a cultural offering of contemporary New York art via a dynamic exhibition representing innovative kinetic sculpture and interactive art. 

By spotlighting installations from emerging artists of today, New Frontiers continues the mission of Abby Aldrich—wife of John D. Rockefeller Jr.—for Rockefeller Center to be a symbol of creative innovation. Each artwork is interactive, making each individual its subject, demonstrating how our future is shaped by having you in it. It reminds those who visit that they are the new frontiers, the makers, the shapers, the dreamers, the observers, the thinkers, the travelers.

New Frontiers can be experienced throughout your group’s time at Top of the Rock and is included with all tickets. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Contact the Top of the Rock group sales team at 877.692.7625 or [email protected].

Let's explore the benefits of planning group tours and travel!

Greater opportunity.
Because there are often so many different elements of a group trip, consumers realize early in the process how the knowledge of a professional would ease stress and help execute a successful experience.

More income.
More travelers and components (i.e. airfare, service fees, lodging, excursions, etc.) mean more opportunities for higher commissions.

Referral business.
When travel professionals do an excellent job planning all the details and remembering "the little things," travelers will tell others, which can significantly grow a professional's opportunity for referrals.

Repeat travelers.
When planning a trip for several people at once versus one unit, it opens the door for you to significantly expand your network, foster more relationships and build opportunity for repeat business.
