Visit www.topoftherocknyc.com/redeemcitypass and follow the on-screen instructions; you'll receive a Top of the Rock ticket via email, which you will present for admission at your reserved time. (Reserving online will not start your 9-day validity period.) You can also reserve ahead of time in person by visiting the Top of the Rock box office in advance of your desired visit day/time to secure tickets, as long as the visit time falls within the 9-day CityPASS validity period. If you reserve in person, your 9-day validity period will start when you reserve your time.
