View from Top of the Rock

Despite spending a lot of time in New York City over the years, (he lived in the Waldorf Astoria for a year) Kongo had never seen the view of the New York skyline from the Top of the Rock. Wow, what a view. The above photo shows the Empire State Building as the sun sets over Manhattan.

You need a ticket to get to the Top of the Rock, the NBC Building at Rockefeller Center, but they’re free. An express elevator whisks you to the 67th floor in 42 seconds and there are three levels of observation decks. The views are simply spectacular. Play tourist the next time you’re in the Big Apple and be sure you see this.

Travel safe. Have fun.

    1. Yes, the Waldorf was great but you know, at the end of the day it’s just another hotel with a really cool lobby! Thanks for visiting!

    You have lovely photos, but I think another “artist” has used your image for their art. Perhaps you gave permission, but he seems to present it as his original work. Check it out here: https://www.timbengel.com/sandundgold (titled My American Dream).

    1. Penguin, thanks for the heads up. It’s difficult to tell because of the way the image has been manipulated but it is a very popular place to take photos. Best.
