30 Rock

After a little shopping on 5th Avenue, my Mom and I ran into Rockefeller Center. Very cool. We decided to visit "Top of the Rock" to get a view of Manhattan, it was awesome! I highly recommend it if you're visiting the Big Apple.

Down below, where the ice skating rink is (during Winter), right now there are a bunch of restaurants, and we had lunch there, which was very nice.

View from the plaza, Rockefeller Center was actually built during the Depression and was considered a very risky project.

Up at the top!

The Chrysler building, which we mistook for the Empire State Building, but were later corrected on a night tour of the city. :)

The view looking down, isn't that cool? (The big building in the distance is the Empire State Building).

The view on the other side-Central Park. It's so huge!! I believe I heard it was almost 900 acres!

It was a hot day, so I thought it was cool that you could see all the sunbathers (look closely) on this bit of Central Park.

And finally, the Empire State Building, good thing I took a picture even though I didn't realize what it was!
