We made the Empire State Bldg our #1 stop. It was a good move, because there was no one there yet and we went straight up (at times the wait can be 2 hrs.).
If you have never been in the Empire State Bldg. then you should know that we only went to the 86th floor Observatory - not the top of the building. (It is another $14. to go the the 102nd floor.)
This is a picture of the Chrysler Bldg as viewed from the Empire State Bldg.
A lovely view of the Hudson River. :0)
If you look in the middle of these buildings, you will see the ice skating rink those tiny dots are skaters!
Look past these buildings and you can see Central Park! It looks small from the Empire State Building, but it is actually huge! (I'll show more pictures of Central Park in another post.)
We found a kind lady from England to snap this shot of our whole family.My daughter snapped this neat picture of this pigeon with a bird's eye view of NYC! LOL
Ok, in this last shot from the Empire State Building, I have to tell you I love it because of it's shadow--do you see it?
I will post more later on our NYC trip!
