New York City: Manhattan – Part III – Empire State Building

After lunch, Tim and I walked to the Empire State Building. We were immediately greeted by a man that was trying to sell up some tickets to go up to the observation deck of the Empire State Building. The tickets entitle us to go for some sort of ride and then skip the queue to the observation deck. According to the man, there is usually a 45 minutes queue up to the deck.

Sensing that it was all bullshit, we asked the man to F off and we headed straight to the building.


The lobby of the Empire State Building.

There’s a special lift up to the observation deck. There’s a US$20 entrance fee. Farking expensive.

We also found out that there was no 45 minutes queue. It took us less than 45 minutes to get to the deck. Perhaps it was not crowded because it was a weekday.


Concrete Jungle alll thee wayyyyyyyyy!


Somehow reminds me of SimCity 2000. Awesome game. Give me a pleasant feeling whenever I think of that game!


And the view was awessooomeeeeeeeeeeeeee

The observation deck doesn’t have a roof. All they have is some metal barricades. Good place to jump off to commit suicide. Die in style yo.

There’s a small souvenir shop which you can visit after the visit to the observation deck. Plenty of Empire State Building merchandises. I remember Dad bought me a small metal Empire State Building with a thermometer next to it when I was small – which I still keep until today. Unfortunately, I broke the thermometer a week after getting it.


Empire State Building made of Lego.

After Empire State Building, we made a long long journey to a place…stay tuned for updates!
