This particular activity might well have been the pinnacle of Frank Sinatra renditions – the acoustics at 70 floors up really are incomparable – Jack will tell you all about it. But maybe he is too busy taking selfies to give you the time of day?
Rockefeller Centre, NY
We had heard from lots of people that the Empire State Building is over-rated, long queues and crowded viewing platforms don’t quite make for the postcard picture you want to send home to mum, just lots of snaps of people’s heads and elbows. So we vetoed the Empire State in favour of it’s slightly smaller rival, The Top of The Rock. And aren’t we glad we did?!
For one thing – when you imagine all those skyline photographs you are going to take, the Empire State is in them right? So what happens if you go up it…it sure as hell ain’t gonna be in it chump! Anyway, the Rock is great, end of. And if you book online in advance and print off the tickets at home, you get to skip all of the queues and run straight on up (well not literally, that would be unadvised).
Oh yeah and we had croissants on top too.
