The Best View in NYC is FREE!

If you’re searching for the best view of NYC, I have good news – you can get it for FREE!

I was interested in going to the Top of the Rock, until I realized it costs $34. Empire State Building observatory? Also $34. But don’t fret, there is an even better way to view New York City from above for free.

Head to the Rockefeller Center, but instead of heading to the Top of The Rock, head to the bar! Bar SixtyFive is located on the 65th floor of the Rockefeller Center at the Rainbow Room, with sweeping views of the skyline, and you can access this for free.

It’s the highest bar in NYC with an outdoor patio and the views are incredible! I recommend going in time to catch the sunset. It’s magnificent! However, please note it’s closed on Saturday.

If you so choose, you can purchase a specialty cocktail at this bar, and they are great! What could be better than enjoying a Manhattan while overlooking Manhattan? (See what I did there?) Very Sex and the City! I got the Pomegranate Blood Orange Sparkler and it was amazing! However, if drinking isn’t your thing, you can come up to snap some photos for free!

      Yes, definitely go check it out next time you’re back! It’s a great view! You actually get a great view over Central Park as well, but it was still winter when I was there, so not as visually appealing. It would be amazing in the summer, though!

    What a great tip! An amazing view and a cocktail for less than the price of the ticket for Top of the Rock! And those cocktails look delicious! #gltLOVE
