Although no longer the world’s tallest skyscraper, this Art Deco classic is a must in terms of New York tourist destinations. Drag your date along like King Kong, or arrange a rooftop rendez-vous Sleepless in Seattle-style. Go during the day for views that show the layout of the city in greater detail, and at nighttime for the rush of the city’s lights – or get the best of both worlds at sunset. Save yourself loads of time by buying your tickets online and head stress-free directly to the Elevator Line. Otherwise, your best bet is an early morning visit to keep waiting to a minimum. Security has been tightened lately, so make sure you bring picture ID.
