"The Empire State Building opens at 8:00am and closes at 2:00am every day, and the last elevator up is at 1:15pm. As of 2014, tickets to the main deck are $29.00 for adults, $23.00 for 6-12 year-olds, and $50.00 for Express Passes. You may also want to experience the Sky Ride while you are there as well. The Sky Ride is a “super large flight simulator” which is basically a virtual reality helicopter ride through Manhattan and Central Park. Ask about it when you get there! For more information, log on to As an alternative to this, the rooftop on the 70th floor of Rockefeller Plaza (creatively named “Top of the Rock”) has been re-designed and re-opened after years of abandonment, and it is amazing! Unlike the Empire State Building, which uses a fence as protection, the Top of the Rock uses flat, non-reflective glass panels, which allows for completely unobstructed views of the Empire State Building and Central Park with no camera flash to ruin the pictures! They use a “timed-ticket” method, which means you choose what time you want to go, and this prevents having to wait in long lines when you arrive. They also have an option of purchasing “Sunrise Sunset” tickets, which allow guests to visit twice in one day. Purchase your “Sunrise Sunset” ticket for the first time slot you wish to attend and make another visit to Top of the Rock later in the day. Check out for more details! The Statue of Liberty/ Ellis Island ferry runs to the islands every fifteen minutes from 8:30am until 4:30pm, and the tickets can be purchased at Clinton Castle in Battery Park. Keep in mind that this tour runs about 3-4 hours depending on how much time you plan to spend on each island. As of 2014 monument access passes are $18.00 for adults, $9.00 for ages 4-12, and $14.00 for Senior Citizens (62 and over). Crown access passes are $21.00 for adults, $12.00 for ages 4-12, and $17.00 for Senior Citizens (62 and over). Also keep in mind that if you choose to go after 2:00pm you will only be able to go to either Liberty Island or Ellis Island. Ferry tickets and time passes can be ordered in advance by calling the ferry company at: 1-866-STATUE4 or online at !"  See More
