here's up on the 86th floor of the empire state building. as you can see, this is the west side. empire state building should be renamed the empire state queue
. there was about an hour's queue to get up and another 30 minute queue to get down. now, a queue to get up i can understand, but one to go down, i dunno.. also, i think its a marketing ploy to get you to line up and they take a dodgy photo and try to sell it to you for $16.50!! a photo for $16.50 !? i can have 3 steaks for that price. why don't they think we have cameras? maybe they are preying on eastern european tourists who don't have money to buy a camera? but why would they buy a $16.50 photo!? but the view was nice, central park is huge! i wish it was a less foggy day. i'll post more pics from up there later.
