A highly recommended time to go to the observation deck is at sunset or sunrise, to see how the orange sky covers the entire city and get the best pictures.

This ticket also allows you to enter directly to the Empire State Building. Therefore, you will not lose any time as long lines are usually formed. Before leaving the building it is also essential that you visit the museum located on the second floor.
