Empire State Building

Here is another view of the Empire State Building as seen from 34th Street and 7th Avenue, outside the Macy's departmental store.

So have you been to the top of the Empire State Building or any really tall buildings?

I was there in 1992, it was cloudy, and I couldn't see anything! I was 12, and I just wanted to go up there, didn't listen to my parents' warnings.

Last year I visited the Top of the Rock, which was awesome.. The view was great, Central Park to one side, and Empire State Building to the other.

Ah .. its been a lifetime since I was inside the Empire State Bldg .. I worked there on the 50th floor ... the top .. well not since I was a kid in grade school .. I am not a fan of heights so I didnt go to the TOP ...

Went up it twice when we were in NYC 3 years a go. Once in the day and once at night. It was an amazing view!

I went to the top of the Empire State Building in 1990! Loved the art deco inside.

Yes, but not in several years! I really should do it again sometime - take one of those days where I act like a tourist in my own city!

No never been up there. Amazing shot. Must be hard to take a fresh image of one of the most photographed iconic buildings ever

Took the elevator/tour to the top in May of 2007. What a few and what a sense of history. Have photos of the elevator dial on the top floor.

Enjoyed looking down on those little "yellow cars" zooming everywhere. Great views all around as it was a very clear day.

Great photo, Ming.
