So Good They Named It Twice

View Round the World on shoestring's travel map.

On our first full day in New York we wanted to get a good overview of the city. Where better than the Empire State Building?


Completed in 1931, the Empire State Building is an art deco masterpiece, and the lobby reflects the era's style.


As for the view - we'll let the photos do the talking.

That's a familiar sight! So sunny! It was nothing like that while we were there. What are the temperatures like?

Was there a huge gorilla at the top of the Empire State Building or was Big Al the security guard not on duty while you were there?
