The "Final Five" Olympic champions are officially New York City tourists.

Members of the U.S. Women's Gymnastic Olympic Team stopped by the Empire State Building on Tuesday to snap some pics, talk to press and take in the iconic skyline view.

Gabby Douglas, Madison Kocian, Aly Raisman, Simone Biles and Laurie Hernandez all sported their USA shirts during the visit to the observation deck.

"Final Five takes on heights @ Empire State Building," Simone Biles, who won a record-breaking five metals in Rio, tweeted on Wednesday alongside a selfie with the team.
