The Rockefeller Center just revealed a great new attraction that flashes back to a photo from 1932. In the picture, construction workers are chilling on a tall building, having lunch while building 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Now, people can relive that moment by getting on a recreated beam on the 69th floor at the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. This new beam lifts people 12 feet above the regular observation deck.

Anyone Can Recreate the Beam Photo

Once people get on the beam and up in the air, it starts to spin around, giving an awesome view of the city from more than 800 feet up. It’s a chance to get a super unique photo, just like the famous one everyone knows.

The folks who own Rockefeller Center say this new attraction, called “The Beam,” is a big part of their plan to make the observation deck even cooler. The deck is famous for its awesome views of the city’s most famous spots. After checking out the deck, visitors can explore the rest of Rockefeller Center, which they say has been updated to be authentic and just as attractive as when it was first built almost 100 years ago.

Visitors have to pay $25 to try out the Beam on top of the regular ticket for the Top of the Rock. This deal includes the experience and a digital photo. The regular ticket prices range from $40 to $55 for adults. The company is also planning to launch something else called the Sky Lift next year, where people will go up 30 feet above the 70th floor on a glass platform. It will certainly be a thrilling experience.

Prep the Tasty Meal

The healthy part of the meal comes from using an oven instead of a pan for your veggies. Chop them into uniformed pieces to ensure they roast evenly, and pop them in the oven until they’re golden. While the veggies are roasting, use a bowl to mix the goat cheese with some herbs of choice until you have a creamy combination to spread on the bread. In the end, spread the seasoned cheese on the bread, add the veggies, and top it off with arugula, flaky sea salt, and the hot honey drizzle.
