A New York state of mind


It’s been a while since I’ve been to the top of the Empire State Building in New York City, and on this visit I was determined to return (and bring Jack up there for the first time). When Lori and I lived in the city, it was one of the first landmarks we always brought visiting friends to, though I don’t remember it being so expensive back then. Jack was incredibly excited to ride the elevator which sped like lightning to the 86th floor, and when we stepped out onto the windy and cold observatory deck and saw the views, this wide-eyed eight year old was more than impressed. I could tell that he was intrigued by how high we were, especially since we had been noticing the top of the tower from just about every part of the city we had already visited, and it was cool to see him literally run from the east to west to north and south sides of the observatory in search of a different view. Methinks this is one experience he will remember for a long time. Once again… everything in this post was Instagrammed.

      Thanks Dave. It is quite an experience, one that I will never get tired of, and one that I’m sure Jack will remember for a long time.

  1. Inspired and pretty

    It’s great to see the views by daylight, I saw it at night, it was amazing. I also went to Top Of The Rock, that time at daylight.

  2. Nice to follow you in so different surroundings from “your” Acadia, David. I have wished to go to New York for a long time, your photos are great 🙂 – looking forward to see more!

I'd love to hear from you...
