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, as well as some historical shots of the early days of the original Rockefeller Center Observation Deck.
