More Adventures in New York

After we left the Rainbow Book Fair, lugging our new treasures, we found some lunch in a macrobiotic restaurant, which we located mostly by smell (curry) and vegetarian entrees. The pizza place Damon Suede directed us to either we didn’t recognize or it had closed, so we read menus down the street. This is now late afternoon on a Saturday, and while the city never sleeps, certain attractions shut their doors. We didn’t make it to the American Museum of Natural History (next time) but we did want to do something touristy, that could only be done in New York City. So we went to the top of the Empire State Building.

The usual way to get a picture of you on the Empire State Building doesn’t get a lot of the building in it. Here’s Eden, looking out over the void.

You can get the top of the building into the picture. No blimps docking today.

We met some urban wildlife. It thought it was an airplane, or it wouldn’t have been at this altitude.

We went all the way to the top, where the observation deck was enclosed, so we didn’t get blown right off the walkway. The deck was lined with pictures of the steelworkers building this amazing structure.

I don’t think Eden knew I got this view, snork.

Tomorrow, the pictures from The Rare Event venues.
