It's time to take in New York City's sunrise from new heights.

The Empire State Building has reopened its 86th-floor outdoor observation deck to visitors at dawn with a new package called "Sunrise with Starbucks."

For $114.98, you can get an unobstructed view of the sunrise with a small group of 50 guests, a complimentary Starbucks coffee and a limited-edition 90th Anniversary tote bag.

You'll also get access to the ESB's exhibits that opened just before the pandemic, including its history, the people who built it, its opening day, and "Kong," a room that recreates the 1933 film King Kong with his giant hands coming through the windows.

Tickets, which are for most Saturday mornings each month, are available here.

Entry times depend on the date as the sunrise changes, but visitors should arrive 30 minutes before sunrise is set to happen.

The Empire State Building isn't the only skyscraper to offer sunrise viewings—in February, Edge at Hudson Yards offered sunrise viewings for Valentine's Day.
