The Beam at Top of the Rock

If you have ever dreamed of being a construction worker in the years before the National Labor Relations Act, here is your chance.

The Beam is a new “experience” at Top of the Rock, where you can sit on a metal beam for 90 seconds to replicate the 1932 photo 'Lunch Atop a Skyscraper' in which 11 ironworkers are seen perched on a steel beam eating lunch while 30 Rockefeller Plaza was under construction.

Now, 91 years later, The Beam has returned to Rockefeller Center for an incredible, interactive experience on the 69th floor.
