The original Rockefeller Center Observation Deck was opened to the public in 1933 before closing in 1986. In the fall of 2005, a newly renovated "Top of the Rock" Observation Deck was re-opened to the public, offering a great alternative to the perennial popular (and often crowded) Empire State Building
. Check out these photos to see what awaits you at the Top of the Rock Observation Deck
