Pit stop over, and we were on our way to the Empire State Building. We planned to go here just in time for sunset, and stay to see all of the dazzling New York City lights - this did not go to plan! We underestimated quite how long it would take to get there from the hostel, and arrived in the dark! The views were still very impressive, and to our luck we didn't have to queue at all! We did find out however, it is extremely difficult to take any decent photos of yourself at the top - especially a selfie with a view!
Begin the second of your 3 days in New York City by visiting The Empire State Building. It is a towering masterpiece in Midtown Manhattan and is the most photographed building in the world. Standing at a whopping 1,454 feet, it was the tallest building in the world for nearly 40 years, until the original North Tower of the World Trade Centre was constructed in 1970. Aerial observatories are situated on floors 86 and 102. From here, you can get an unbelievable 360 degree view of New York City that gives you a real feel for how densely populated the Big Apple is. Get here early or during lunchtime to avoid queues and tour groups.
'' Zindagi mai kitna bhi try karo , kuch na kuch to chootega hi. So jaha ho wahi ka maja lete jao. '' the most famous dialogue of the movie YJHD and I followed it completely. Being able to wake up in the morning and decide on a whole new city to visit that day was incredible. I didn’t have to ask anybody else what they wanted to do - it was entirely up to me and my whims. My whims took me to some incredible places!
its even HIGHER! Sadly for us, it was all foggy up there..but it offers a majestic view of the city..best time to visit is at sun down when the city lights are on
This 103 story tall structure in the midtown manhattan provides the best view of the whole of the neighbourhood. If you haven't made an early reservation for the observation deck, you will have to wait in a long queue and be sure to wait for atleast two good hours.
One of the most famous buildings in the world. Do go to the top (ticket required) to get mesmerizing 360 view of NYC. You can easily spot famous NYC landmarks from observation deck.
I'd never been here before which I thought was weird since I've been to NYC so many times. The view really is great, even on a cold/cloudy/windy day.
I felt at the top of the world and yet humble enough to know the greatness of such a creation. Having paid USD 27 dollars for a "priceless" view and invaluable feeling was absolutely worth it.
The fourth-tallest skyscraper in New York, The Empire State Building is a National heritage structure and one of the seven wonders of the Modern World. The enclosed observatory on the 102nd floor is the city’s highest lookout point. From here, you can enjoy views of all five boroughs and five neighboring states; at sunset, you can glimpse an elongated urban shadow cast from Manhattan all the way across the river to Queens. It highlights the Art Deco style and its architecture is in sync with American culture. It was ranked number one by Americans for its architecture.
