Top of the Rock
Being a jet lagged traveler visiting from Europe has the advantage of being able to stand up really early.
And standing up early brings you pretty much in front of each waiting line, for example if you want to get onto one of the observation decks in Manhattan. I’ve been on the Empire State Building a couple of times, and friends told me to visit the Rockefeller Center’s observation deck as well.
So I went on “Top of the Rock” on a misty winter morning and spent some time exploring the city and it’s visitors.
