Travel – The Empire State Building


While in New York this week for a media event I had a little extra time to see the city. I have never been to New York City during the fall and I enjoyed all the pumpkins and hay that lined the trees on 5th Avenue.  My friend Jennifer from Double Duty Mommy and I made our way to the observation deck of The Empire State Building. Tickets start at $25.00 and go up depending upon which floor you’d like to go to. Completed in 1931 I have to say The Empire State Building is one of the worlds marvels. The interior is so beautiful and just the massive size.

There are two observatories. An open air 360-degree terrace on the 86th floor also contains an indoor viewing gallery for chillier days. Outside, you’ll find high powered binoculars and a wheelchair-accessible promenade with the most spectacular views of downtown, midtown, Central Park and beyond.

Sixteen stories up, and almost a quarter mile up in the sky, you can visit the 102nd floor Observatory, the highest public point in New York City. Relax and take in the full 360-degree view in our climate-controlled indoor gallery with comfortable perches.

While up at the top we had some incredible views. the photos speak for themselves.

Buy tickets now and save time during your visit by skipping the ticket office line.

I had such a great time visiting the greatest city on earth. Have you ever been to the top of The Empire State Building?
