The queues are ridiculous. The crowds at the top are worse... but you'll forget the nuisance for a moment when you see the view. We opted to climb a few stairs to avoid claustrophobia and nixed a few minutes off the waiting time. It's definitely a tourist trap, but it seemed silly that we'd visited NY so many times and never went up to the top of this iconic building, so we did.
