“Top of the Rock: The Beam” attack is located on the 69th floor of Rockefeller Center, according to WABC. The new attraction is a beam that lifts visitors about 12 feet above the Rockefeller Center Plaza observation deck.

Once “The Beam” is up, it rotates 180 degrees and provides a “breathtaking view” of parts of New York City including Central Park, the news outlet reported.

“The Beam” recreates “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper” a famous newspaper photograph from 1932, according to WCBS. The photograph depicted ironworkers casually sitting on a beam while taking a break from helping to build 30 Rockefeller Plaza. The original photo was published in The New York Herald-Tribune on Oct. 2, 1932.

The hope is that “The Beam” will help enhance the visitor experience of Rockefeller Center from the observation deck. It also isn’t the only new attraction that you will be seeing. In 2024, “The Sky Lift” will make its debut from the 70th Floor, according to WABC. It will lift guests about 30 feet “the uppermost rooftop upon a circular glass platform.”
