Three levels of absolute breathtaking views. Welcome to the Top of the Rock. It’s $27 to get access to the three levels. There’s even a section to sit and relax and charge your phone. Now that I’ve visited, and if I had to choose, I’d choose this over the Empire State Building observatory any day. (If you want to compare views, head over here.)

If you want to get both the day and night views, head on over about an hour before sunset. Stay for around two hours and you’ll get to experience both. I went on a weekday afternoon and the line was around 10 minutes (including security check).

I think life will always be a mix of ups and downs, highs and lows, good times and hard times - how else would you know how truly happy you could be if you didn't struggle? And no matter how hard life gets, there's always that one little voice in the back of your head telling you to push on. That's hope. And hope never dies.Be strong, my love.
