We started our second day by walking to the Rockefeller Centre. We arrived so early that there was no queue and we were able to go straight up to the observation deck, top of the rock. Brilliant views, the first 2 levels were from behind large panes of glass but at the highest level we were able to take photos with glass in front of us and around all 360 degrees.
