    Makes today's construction workers with the safety harnesses look like pansies.

    Default Top of the Rockerfeller...rocks!

    I was in midtown the other day with 30 min to spare before my show started and I popped up to the 'top of the rock' viewing platform. Definitely worthwhile and very nice. Not as good a view of downtown as the Empire State Building but arguably a better view of midtown. Also, less of a queue.

    Only quibbles: they don't half make you traipse all over three levels before you actually get on the cheesy "sound effects" elevator up to the platform...but the view is worth it.

    Glad you made it.

    Must have brought your laptop.

    Forum had a terrible tragedy. See Forum Issues page.

    I'm back home now. Read about that poor guy. I hope they nail the S.O.B.s.

    Nope, if you'd like to use the image, contact me personally. Sorry!
