Here I was. Standing on the top of one of the tallest building in the world. I remember waiting in line for 3 hours to get here. I entered the elevator. Then there was a ding! My body was filled with excitement. The silver doors opened, and my family and I had reached the top floor of the Empire State Building.
The wind was so out of control that it was making my hair blow into different directions. We were all bundled in coats and jackets. Our noses were red, and the air was cold.
Getting to see the city under my feet was incredible! I saw Town Square on the right, and the Statue of Liberty in the distance. I saw countless numbers of yellow dots resembling the taxi cabs. Everything seemed to have turned 1000x smaller.
Visiting the Empire State Building was one of my favorite highlights of this trip. Another was seeing the Statue of Liberty which I hope to write about one day.
