In all my visits to New York City over the years, I have never taken the time to go to the top of Rockefeller Center, or Top of the Rock, as it’s called. This time around, I decided to catch a different view of the city from above and head up the 60+ flights of the center and I couldn’t have been more pleased.
With the exception of the view of the Empire State Building being impeded by another building, the view was amazing, only topped the further up I went. Head to the top and taken in the view of Central Park, in all it’s green glory, and of the Chrysler Building, seen here in “Viewpoint,” and now in today’s Photo of the Day, “The City.”
Once again, I decided to do both a color and black and white version of this photo and, for me, I think it’s a tie as to which I like more. My experience at the Top of the Rock has inspired me to check out alternate “view from above” here in Chicago in lieu of the Willis Tower (aka Sears Tower).
