"Great for walks" Empire State Building Tip by mafootje

Empire State Building, New York City: 64 reviews and 49 photos

  Feeling small in New York
by mafootje

Favorite thing: To see New York City...

was always a dream for me. Feel the power of a city that really never sleeps. Offcourse we wanted to see the big landmarks like the Empire State building , Twin towers and the chrysler building.

The first year we went to the US we only drove through it with Niki's Niece and stopped for a visit to the Empire Stat building.

When we went there all by ourself the next year the town gave me some fear, this faded away quickly but the feeling of being small stayed.

Fondest memory: Walking through this city in our own pace, take the Subway and walk through Battery Park.

Maybe it was different at that time, but the Twin towers have gotten a special place in our hearts.
