Back to NYC: Empire State Building

I just got back from a trip to New York City. I went to NYU, so I’m particularly fond of the city and love to get there as much as possible. My friend Rebecca was traveling with me and she had never been to the top of The Empire State Building. I was thrilled to tag along on her first visit to one of the most famous buildings in NYC.  Here are some of my favorite photos of one of New York’s most iconic buildings and an art deco gem.

I love observation decks in general, and the telescope viewfinders are so old school.

My BFF Zan was also in the city. Zan is a comedian and also used to being on the road. It is an occupational hazard for both of us (and a win) when we wind up in the same city at the same time.  All three of us got together for lunch at Les Halles NYC. The restaurant is  just a few blocks from the Empire State building and a classic European brasserie. Les Halles is perhaps best known for being the restaurant where Anthony Bourdain was once the chef.

Tip: if you’ve already been to the Empire State Building another great scenic spot to check out is Top of the Rock observation deck at Rockefeller Center.
