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. It is indeed bursting with awesomeness, particularly this time of year. Kongo falls in love with NYC all over again every time he visits. “These vagabond shoes, are longing to roam, I want to be a part of it ….”

  1. You lived in the Waldorf Astoria for a year?! How wonderful is that! The view from the top is awesome. Great photo. Thanks for the like of my post….yours is better! 🙂

    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.
