That's all we need, self absorbed Instagram influencers hogging up space and views in an already cramped area. That photographer amazing though.

For an extra $20 bucks, let'em have their fun. Most of the people won't bother to go up though. I've only been up to that level once myself, but will certainly check it out now.

Last weekend, I had the honor to become one of the first people to be taken higher than ever before with @empirestatebldg 's newly renovated 102nd Floor Observatory Deck. The experience was incredible & unforgettable! 🌟It was my first time to see the 360-degree view of New York City & beyond --

I got there early to watch the sun come up over the city (from 6:30-7:30AM), without worrying about the wind, rain, or other weather condition! And, hey! I was able to keep my hat on the whole time! 👨🏻🎨Whether you're in town for a week or a day, keep the 102nd floor of the #empirestatebuilding on your "must see" list -- I strongly recommend it!

101 or 102??

This has been bugging me for the longest time and now seems as good a time as any to post this..

Don't know if this has been mentioned before but that Observation Level is really the 101st floor - the 102nd floor is the outdoor platform/parapet above.

For extra $20.00, I want to go up to the parapet too!



Look ->

It was very sad, indeed.

Slightly off-topic - Found this interesting story about

what a shot, just above . .
the closeup of the ESB's saltshaker spire . .
the historical building's most distinctive feature . .
great to see the cleanup & renovation of the 102nd deck portion . .
reassuring to know that this old faithful landmark
will still be able to handle the tourists . .

but what a tarnished wreck ! . .
please strip off all the unsightly haphazard
gangly jerryrigged tech-whatchamacallits . .
Repair, restore, & polish, the shapely sleek deco stainless-steel lantern surfaces . .
then, if need be, affix whatever necessary tech parts, that are still functioning,
to the antenna [perhaps heightened] . .

The ESB's renowned pinnacle,
it's distinctive one-of-a-kind lantern-crown . .
is no longer the metropolitan area's broadcasting workhorse . .
There are plenty of taller buildings to do that job . .
So it's time to lose the rusted, greazy junkyard, of outdated instruments
cluttering up our graceful jewel . .

though she's no longer tallest in the world,
she's probably still the most famous iconic office building . .
especially with the recent up-to-date colored lighting up top . .
And she could, . . lavished with some civic-minded attention, . .
and from an advantageous angle, with an intriguing cloudscape backdrop . .
still be considered, the classiest, most majestic skyscraper in the world . .
