Go to the Top of Rockefeller Center

I regret the fact that I never got to go up in the Twin Towers and see the world from the observation deck. I’d
lived in New York for almost two years when they came down, and going up in the towers to the top was one of those
things I always figured I’d eventually get to. Now, of course, it is too late.

And so I was very intrigued to learn recently that the amazing Art Deco observation decks of  Rockefeller Center
will reopen to the public November 1. They’ve been closed for over two decades – since 1986 – but they have now
renovated the famous Top of the Rock, and the building
now includes three observation decks on the 67th to 70th floors, with open-air views that on a clear day will let you
see the back of your head.

Now, I am in no way suggesting that Rock Center will be wrecked by terrorists, but I am saying that when there is an
opportunity to do something like this, well, you should do it.

You can
buy tickets online and print them yourself, or call the center at (877) 692-7625 or (212) 698-2000.
Rock Center, for those who might be visiting, is located at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, with the entrance on W. 50th Street,
between 5th and 6th Avenues.
