On Saturday, we took my stepdaughter to the top of the Empire State Building for the first time. It was one of those crisp, clear-blue-sky days, and this is what the view looked like:
It was cool and windy, but we didn’t care. I love this place so much, from the Art Deco lobby…
to the top.
There’s also a nice gift shop with a colorful light
and some nice martini glasses.
But oh, those views….
Hudson River and New Jersey
That’s the Chrysler Building in the middle. Another Art Deco beauty.
If you can, go at this time of year, because the lines are short and there’s less haze. When I went in the summer, it took hours and the views just weren’t great.
All I can say is WOW! That first shot is so awesome and then you just keep hitting us with those beautiful views. What a gorgeous day as well. I have never been to the top of the Empire State building and that might be good cause they would have a hard time getting me to leave 🙂
OH and I love the martini glasses too 🙂
I know you love beautiful architecture too, Mindy, so I’m sure you’d never want to leave. Ah, to have the money to buy a loft there….
Beautiful pictures. I love the shots of the Chrysler building and the Empire lobby. Someday I will get there.
I think you’d love it, Jeanne.
Lovely! If you look really closely in the photo of Lower Manhattan, way out in the distance of Brooklyn, you can see me waving at you. LOL! 🙂
I wondered who that was! 🙂 I wish we’d had time to see Brooklyn this trip. Next time.
Thrilling! I had chills through this entire post. There’s just nothing like the pulse of a giant city, is there. The architecture alone is enough to clutch at your heart.
So glad you went, and so glad you had a wonderful time!
Oh, thanks, Maura. The architecture in NY just kills me. I want to go back and spend a whole weekend just shooting all those incredible buildings. Well, a fraction of them, anyway. 🙂
Really gorgeous! So wonderful you had such a clear day – and I love those martini glasses!
Thanks so much, and welcome!
Impressive as always, Carole. I love visiting and walking New York.
Thanks, Cheryl. Hope the weather is improving up there. When we left New York, it was snowing lightly and the temp was 36. When we reached D.C., it was in the 70s.
Those are pretty lights and martini glasses. Ah, I miss NY.
You were so lucky to live and work there. I wish I had.
I would so love to see New York. Thanks for the photos. The views are fantastic and I agree, the Art Deco is so great.
I think you’d love it, Caroline. NY is like nowhere else in the world.
