Occasional Traveler

A collection of my thoughts and photos on travel.

Top of the Rock

with 3 comments

May 2, 2009 | I learned of Top of the Rock at the end of my last visit and vowed to visit the next time I had the opportunity to do so.  As usual, my sister refused to go up and opted to check out J. Crew.  (Jen finds going up a building/structure and back down completely pointless!)  Luckily, Monica came along, as she was leaving the city in a month or so and wanted to see some of the sites before she left.

It was here that I saw a sign of Swine Flu scare in person! To no surprise, it was a couple of Japanese tourists who were wearing mouth guards, haha.

Anyhow, once we were on top, there was an awesome view of the city!

Apparently the famous photograph that decorates the walls of many poor college students, Men on Beam, was taken during the construction of the GE Building– anyone watch 30 Rock??  Tina Fey is awesome!

FYI– Top of the Rock refers to the GE Building, but Rockfeller Center is actually comprised of 19 buildings!  I just learned that from Wikipedia.  =)
