USA View from Empire State Building, New York City

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
One of the most amazing views in New York City. You have to buy a ticket, to get up to the platform. A good thing is the New York Pass with Fast Entrance shortens the wait, and you can save money with it. But it has a looooong wait, sometimes about 1.5h or more. But the wait is worth it! You'll get a fantastic feeling. Don't miss it.

Photography Tips

Ultra Wide Angle Lens (Fullframe 14 to 20mm)!! And preferably no tripod, because there are too many people! Try to support yourself on the palings. For night photography you need luck and space to build up your tripod. For a good angle of view, you can try a panoramic shot out of your hand.

Quote "And preferably no tripod, because there are too many people! " I hear this the first time. I am quite sure that you cannot bring a tripod up to Empire State Building. They have airport like security and will prevent any kind of tripod like equipment to enter the terraces. So my recommendation: make yourself comfortable with handheld shooting.

I had a full tripod in 2011 that they definitely would not pass through security. Not sure how to use a travel tripod up there. The web is full of reports from the last years that even a table-tripod would not go through. But hey, it might be worth a try with something maximum stealthy. A beanbag would perhaps do the trick. Worst case is that you have to let it downstairs with security in a locker and pick it up afterwards.
