The City that Never Sleeps

Tonight we ventured up the Rockefeller Tower, a beautiful art deco skyscraper built by J D Rockefeller in the 1930s. The more well-known observation point for looking out on NYC is the Empire State Building... but if you observe the skyline from that vantage point then the one building that is missing from view is, of course, the Empire State Building because you're standing on it. So we decided instead to view the city from the Rockefeller, or the Top of the Rock, as it's known.

As you can see from the pictures, it's a great view, especially at night. Unfortunately, with the heatwave conditions that have gripped New York City for the past three days, some of the major buildings, including the Empire State and the Chrysler buildings, were not fully illuminated in an attempt to ease the strain on the NYC power grid.

It's still an amazing sight.
