this one is for all you tourists out there. i know the empire state building is considered the.place.to.go. i get it, i get it. i mean, hell, this is the empire state! you have to go. but i beg you to reconsider. or, if it's your second time in the city, definitely reconsider. i present - the top of the rock.
i know, i know. you think i'm biased. i work in 30 rock and am trying to "represent" as the kids say these days. but the views of downtown manhattan are stunning. the empire state building may be more famous, but the top of the rock easily and handily beats the views. and if the view of the park can't convince you, i don't know what can.
you can barely see the park from the empire state building. from the top of the rock you get a glimpse into why those apartments on central park south cost so much. perhaps my bias may come from a few of my own favorite memories that i created there.
|the first time he came to visit me in the city.|
so come to new york and make your own. you won't regret it.
