Can you take a little bit more of my photos of NYC? I have so many and, really, no one to look at them but Maurice or me.
This is called the Flat Iron building because of its shape and it is quite famous. We made the trek to have a look and found some interesting things along the way. One was a place called Eataly full of Italian food and items and packed with people eating Italian food. It was an enormous store. We also happened upon the John Dorey Oyster Bar where we stopped for a drink and Maurice had some oysters. It had such a great interior, sort of like Key West. Macy’s was in the neighborhood too and we picked up a few things, exciting things like underwear.
It was nearing sunset and the Empire State Building was nearby so we decided to see if the lines were long. It turned out that we got in really pretty quickly but I would hate to be there when it was really crowded. As it was we snaked around many lines, in and out of rooms, then had to wait for small elevators. First you go to the 80th floor, then take another elevator to the 86th floor and then you can take one to the top, the 102nd floor. which is totally windowed in with scratched windows so I think it was better on the 86th floor.
The sun reflecting off of the memorial building going up for part of a 9/11 memorial. It will be the highest building in NYC and I imagine there will be elevators going to the top. I visited the site a few years ago and decided to wait until it is finished to visit again.
