On Top Of The World
The elevator arrived at the 86th-floor Main Deck and the highest open air observatory in New York. I felt that I was in the centre of the world as I enjoyed 360-degree views of New York City and beyond: Central Park, the Chrysler Building, the Hudson River, the Brooklyn bridge, Times Square, the Statue of Liberty and so much more.
We upgraded to the VIP Express Experience and skipped the lines. It was the quickest way to the top of the Empire State Building which saved us valuable time for all the rest experiences that the city has to offer.
It was a very clear day and I saw about 5 states! Going on a self-guided multi-media tour I learned all about this historic building’s past. It was designed by Shreve, Lamp & Harmon and completed in 1931. It’s 443,2 m tall and it’s the 5th tallest completed skyscraper in the United States.
The experience was exhilarating having the sense of 1050 feet above ground. From the beautiful lobby all the way up to the 102nd Floor Observatory, everything in there had something to say.
I am so grateful and this makes me receptive to the blessing in the life that I already have and to the travels that are coming my way..
