Empire State Building

We have a sweet deal with our friends downstairs: we trade babysitting! So on Saturday night, we wished Hudson “sweet dreams” and set about checking off one of those iconic New York, bucket-list items. We were out the door by 7:45pm, tickets to the Empire State Building Observatory in hand, but we couldn’t believe that we made it outside onto the observatory deck exactly four minutes before the sun set at 8:29.

There’s an undeniable thrill to seeing the city grid fan out below…

We went for Korean Barbecue on 32nd street afterward and then returned to our apartment where, suddenly, we felt so small.

P.S. Views from the Top of the Rock, the top of the Met, and the Brooklyn Bridge.
