Heading up to the 86th floor observation deck and peering out from the Empire State Building is one of those things that every tourist has to do once, and every local has done more times than they can count. Unknown to many, the deck is open until 2AM, long after the offices in the floors below close their doors. When the skies are clear, the views are stunning at night, and the lines are much shorter. In this immersive video from YouTuber actionkid105, see what it's like making your way from the bottom to the top, and exploring around the 86th floor observation deck on a clear night.
Enjoy this walkthrough of the main exhibits and the main deck of the Empire State Building on the 2nd, 80th, and 86th floors! I was fortunate enough to find an unused ticket for the PM session of the Empire State Building experience, but was completely unprepared for it. I only had my GoPro on me, and it isn't the best camera at capturing low light even when adjusting the ISO levels. Main deck portion of this video starts at 9:36.
