NYC tourist

Despite our trip to NYC feeling like an eternity ago, I am yet to finish sorting out my photos! In order to keep the Yankee dream alive for a little longer, I’ve decided to post sporadically about this fine city until I’ve well and truly exhausted it!
After Sam left us for Ohio, Don and I stepped it up a gear and had a manic day of sightseeing. We went cheesy and old school starting with the Staten Island Ferry…

It’s free and you get the best views of the NYC skyline

And then we just couldn’t resist the draw of the empire….
 
New York CIty Empire State
It’s a whacking 102 storeys high, standing 443m off the ground! Having just been up the London Shard (308m) the extra 100m is very noticeable!

For someone who has no fear of heights, even I felt a bit woozy so time for one joint snap and then time to head down!
The travel bug has hit me again and I’m for a cheeky weekend in Paris tonight, so have a good one and catch you on the other side!
