The Empire State Building. Once known as the tallest tower in the world, it is still the most iconic building in New York City (or can I say in America?).
Spending our last day at the observatory deck of the Empire State, overlooking a 360 view of the city. What perfect way to end our New York trip!
Although we didn’t plan it, our timing was perfect. We arrived at half past 7, after waiting in line, we were just in time see the city as the sun kissed the horizon. It was magical. Then one by one, the city started to sparkle from building lights, car headlights and billboards.
I must admit, I became a little (just a little) emotional looking at the city that became our home for the past days. The roads were we got lost and got really really tired (walking) became a very familiar place to all of us.
I will miss this city. The annoying sound that welcomed us during our first night. The (sometimes) scary side streets and people staring at you, the rude drivers and the cold looking people trying to catch the next train in order not to be late a work. I can’t say that New York was kind to us, but what I can say is that with all the things that I mentioned, this city has a way to slowly creep in your heart and you will learn to appreciate all the noise, the chaos …and above all the life that is New York.
