Location: Rockefeller Center
One of my favorite fun facts about my lack of self-tourism in New York City is I work in Rockefeller Center and I’ve never been to the Top of the Rock.
Well, not I’m not really able to say that anymore. The other day, as a surprise after work, I was taken to the top of 30 Rock. The view from the top is something I’ve been dying to see, but always back-burner. Can I share a secret, though?
If you find yourself in New York City, even for a minute, take the time to go to the Top of the Rock. The view was breathtaking. The air was fresh. The wind was peaceful and it was shockingly peaceful and quiet, even with all of the tourists. And because I went after work, I got to witness the sun setting over the Manhattan skyline. It was truly magical, and pictures genuinely don’t do it justice.
All I’m saying is…it’s worth the price of the ticket ($34). There are three tiers of observation decks all included, and benches everywhere. I plan on going back up very soon with a book and a photographer.
PS – I know its still early October, but the Rockefeller Center ice rink is open! I can’t imagine ice skating in this warmth, but if you can, now’s your chance!
