Iconic attraction affords 360-degree views of the Big Apple
By Patti Pietschmann,Travel Diva
The coronavirus took quite a bite out of the Big Apple. But things are improving as the city continues to flatten the curve. Broadway’s not yet open but one major attraction turns on its light this month.
The world famous and uber popular Top of the Rock Observation Deck is reopening August 6 after a five-month coronavirus-caused closure.
The attraction, which sits 70-stories high at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, offers 9,500 square feet of outdoor decks from which you can see sites such as Yankee Stadium and the Statue of Liberty. In fact when you’re up there it feels like you can touch Central Park.
Of course nothing opens today without health protocols. And Top of the Rock will have them all from mandatory masks to social distancing.
Visiting hours are daily from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Entrance is on West 50th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues. Do purchase tickets in advance.
