Visitors to the Empire State Building can opt to pay an additional fee (as of 10/27/10 it's $15) to take the elevator to the 102nd Floor Observatory. The 102nd Floor Observatory is 200 feet above the 86th Floor Observatory and completely enclosed. Tickets can be purchased on site only (the area is very small and this is how they control the issue of overcrowding), but if you buy your Empire State Building ticket online, you can pay for the upgrade on the 86th Floor at a kiosk to avoid having to wait in the ticketing line.
