TOTALLY AWESOME! A MUST DO while in NYC!!!!! While we waited, there was a nice gift shop with affordable mementos! The elevator ride up was VERY smooth! The scenery from the top (all kinds of different levels!) was exquisite - If you go in the early evening, you can see the sun go down and then, experience NYC from a whole different perspective - FULL OF MILLIONS OF LIGHTS! Beautiful!!!!! Well worth the trip up to the top! Get your tickets in advance (if you are able) - no lines! :)
I still come by every so often as a tourist in my own town. Usually here just to look at the tree and the skating rink during the winter holiday season. Area can be very busy so you'll need to be careful of pickpockets. If in the area, I highly recommend taking in a show at Radio City Music Hall or even trying to get to see Jimmy Fallon. There's plenty of shopping above ground and in the concourse.
