What to Do
After taking in the sights below — and exploring some of the 24 acres (9.7 hectares) of underground shops and restaurants — those wanting a different view head to the Top of the Rock® observation deck.

What to See
With three floors of indoor and outdoor observation decks you'll have great views of many of New York's sights, especially if you use the sightseeing binoculars. On the 67th floor you can see the Radiance Wall, a wall of glass panels, blown glass, crystal clusters, and fiber-optic lighting created by Swarovski.
