Empire State Building

To start the week here is a photo of the Empire State Building and midtown Manhattan taken during my walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. It's the tallest building in New York state and takes it's name from the state nickname. I must get to the top one of these days. I think that's a seagull flying in the middle of the picture, but we can pretend it's a more exotic bird!

Don't tell me that there is something in NY that I have done that you haven't. I have been to the top of the Empire State Building. I cant' wait to see some of your city Christmas photos. You will show is some won't you?

Why is it that so many city dwellers or area natives like me, have never been to the observation decks of the great buildings? I guess we always think they will be too crowded with tourists! Have made it to Miss Liberty, though, back when one could climb to the crown level. Nice cityscape.
