NEW YORK, NY – That day on Top of the Rock!! :) For me, possibly the best experience in NY has been to go up the Rockefeller Center (the Empire State Building would do too) to see the view of the entire city from above… so crazy and charming! :) You can hear all the noises from the traffic, construction work, etc echoing up there, pretty funny… I wasn’t expecting this :) It really makes you think of how many people are out there doing their jobs, or rushing around, meeting someone, spending time with friends, …. so many lives, events and dreams intertwined among the streets of NY! xx
