favorite night in the city that doesn't sleep

The visit to the Empire State Building
We waited in line forever to get to the top. Actually we waited in two lines. Once we made it past the original line in the lobby and up to the next staging area, we waited again. I was beginning to wonder if it could possibly be worth all the waiting. The pictures tell the story better than I ever could.

The one thing the pictures cannot convey is the force of wind that whips around the building when you are 86 floors, or 1050 feet above the street. It was exhilarating. Unfortunately for Linda and Gladys they found that their cameras didn’t work very well in the dark. I had some bizarre time lapse photography (?) and some that were wonderful.

Of course, we had to make a foray past Times Square on the way home.
