New York Empire State Building area

If you are going on vacation to New York, you will discover that there are many places to go and they are all rather costly including the Empire State Building. Actually, the whole Empire State Building area is not that cheap. Located in Midtown Manhattan, in Fifth Avenue, this building is the second tallest structure in town. In order to receive free entry to this iconic New York attraction, we recommend you purchase a New York Pass.

Enter the Empire State Building and visit the famous observatory which is located on the 86th floor. You also can’t miss out on the New York Skyride which is on the second floor. Both these attractions would cost over $65 dollars but with a NY pass, they will be free including 70 other attractions. Find out more about this pass, and the two other prepaid attraction passes this city offers you, on our website.
