New York, the city that never sleeps! Well unless you’ve got jet-lag and a quick nap turns into a a few hours and you wake up at 10pm, oops! Well that’s what happened to us on our first full day in the city, after exploring all day which you may have seen in my previous posts. Yet another reason to love New York, not that you needed any further convincing, the subway operates 24hrs, hurrah! London when will this become a thing?! We headed to a Mexican restuarant on our street for dinner and then caught the subway up to the Empire State Building.
If you haven’t visited the iconic landmark previously, I’m not sure anything can prepare you for the sheer scale of the building itself. Let alone the incredible views from the 86th floor observatory. Surprisingly, much to my amazement, it was pretty empty when we went, meaning no queues and no waiting for a spot to look over at the view. It was so cool for us to spend midnight at the observatory and soak up the hum and buzz of the city below.
