Top of the Rock
My dear friend RC has told me many times that when in NYC, I need to go to the Top of the Rock. Well we finally made it up there this trip, along with a hundred other folks which is what makes it so fun. As you can see, there are large panes of glass to keep you in. There are slots between them where folks line up to make their shots. I couldn’t help myself but photograph them.
And the view itself, it doesn’t suck! This is looking down the island and as you can see, the Empire State Bldg is smack dab right in front of you. Now having a good to great sky doesn’t hurt, this is a good sky. Going to the other side of the deck you look right down on Central Park. It’s pretty impressive!
Having seen RC’s photos from up here, I knew I wanted to be up on top at twilight as the lights of NYC come on and the last rays of the day slip away. We ended up spending almost an hour on top watching folks, watching the view and just enjoying making images. It’s a location that I can highly recommend to you when you’re in the Big Apple!
