Nick and I took a impromptu trip to New York City to meet up with some of his friends who were visiting for a few days. We took the train into Grand Central and headed right for the Empire State Building. No one in the group had ever ventured to the top. In fact, Nick and I realized that there are quite a few sites we have yet to see in New York City. We took advantage of the opportunity and went to the 86th Floor Observation Deck.
It was the perfect time of day to be viewing the Big Apple. We were able to see the sun set turn to twilight and eventually into night. This is when New York really came to life. The city lights were incredible from this vantage point. The picture below is my favorite of the hundred that we took. You are able to see the iconic landmarks of midtown Manhattan and beyond.
