Our 30th Anniversary - Chapter 4: Empire State Building

Ahhh, the Empire State Building...
The icon of New York City. The co-star in many movies, such as King Kong, An Affair to Remember, and Sleepless in Seattle. With the loss of the twin towers of the World Trade Center, it is once again the tallest building in the city. If it weren't for the smog and haze, the view would be fantastic. Even haze and all it was still pretty good. We went up twice - once in the day and once in the night - each offering a completely different perspective of the city from 86 floors up.

View from the ESB by day.

Macy's flagship store - a full New York city block, nine full floors.
The largest single store in the world (I think).

Central Park in the distance.

We are enjoying the view!
