View from observation deck of the GE Building ("Top of the Rock"), Manhattan, New York City

This photo was taken from the observation deck atop the GE Building, dubbed "Top of the Rock", which reopened to the public on November 1, 2005. It had been closed since 1986 to accommodate the renovation of the Rainbow Room. The deck, which is built to resemble the deck of an ocean liner, offers sightseers a bird's eye view of the city, competing with the 86th floor observatory of the Empire State Building. It is often considered the best panoramic city view, if only because it offers a view of the aforementioned Empire State Building, which cannot be seen from its own observation deck.
