Rockefeller center is a very beautiful place, with amazing views. It is the best place in New York City that you can take breathtaking and beautiful pictures. The best spot to get the most photogenic picture is “TOP OF THE ROOF.” Although it is costly, I assure you, it is worth the price.

In the situation where you are on a budget, I advise you to take only a picture because Top of the roof costs $45 per person. So it is better to take pictures once, in the place.

Photography Tips:

There are different spots you can get at the top of the roof, which you will not want to miss. These spots are-:

  • Three indoor
  • Outside viewing desks
  • 7th-floor open-air roof deck.
