Watch Sun Rise Over New York City from 86th Floor of Empire State Building

The Empire State Building (ESB) has launched the Sunrise Experience, an unprecedented opportunity to watch the sunrise over New York City from ESB's world-famous 86th floor Observatory.

Guests can share a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see, hear and feel the city wake up with unobstructed, 360-degree open-air views in the heart of NYC. No more than 100 tickets will be sold per sunrise.

State Grill and Bar, located in the lobby of the Empire State Building, will offer the "Empire State Building Sunrise Breakfast", available exclusively to visitors who wake up before dawn. The new offering allows ticket holders to add on breakfast while purchasing passes for the Sunrise Experience.

"Thousands each year rise to see the sunrise at the Grand Canyon. For the first time ever, they will be able to do so from the heart of New York City," said Jean-Yves Ghazi , Director of the Observatory. "Whether you are a local, or visiting New York from another part of the world, this unparalleled opportunity to watch the city that never sleeps transition from night to day is not to be missed."

The Sunrise Experience is initially only available from 1 October 2016 through 20 November 2016 and is priced at $100 per person.

Guests are permitted access to the 86th floor Observatory approximately 30 minutes before the sunrise time. Reservations are required.
