New York: Top of The Rock

[ PHOTOGRAPHY: Myself + @emily_fcp ]

Our last day was a memorable one. We went to the Museum at the FIT in the morning, but I'll include that in another post, and then went to the Rockefeller centre to the observation point. It was so sunny and the views were incredible. I personally thought it would be much better to be able to see the Empire State Building rather than be up it which was a choice we were glad we made. 

The rest of the day was spent relaxing in coffee shops as our legs were about to fall off from all the walking we'd done. It was a great way to end the trip. 

There's so much more I would have loved to do in New York and I'm sure I will be able to in the hopefully not so distant future. I've made a list of things I discovered during my first time in New York and in the United States:
  • Nobody can drive
  • The road rage is real, I appreciated a bit of peace and quiet in Williamsburg as nobody was constantly beeping their horns
  • You have to tip everyone pretty much everywhere you go or you will be killed
  • Everyone loves that you're from the UK, especially the misogynistic builders
  • The prices for some unknown reason don't include tax so it's a lovely surprise when you reach the checkout only to find out that you have to pay more than you expected
  • New York folk are a lot less enthusiastic than the stereotypical American which I was extremely thankful for
  • The city definitely never sleeps
