My first night in New York and I visited the Top of the Rock Observatory. It’s based at the top of the GE building, part of the Rockefeller Center.  The evening sky was clear and the view was amazing. 360 degree views of New York City by night. I got some stunning photos but sadly I have nothing to show show at present, as my 16GB Panasonic Class 10 memory card decided to corrupt itself a day later. Grrrrrr!!!!

Highly annoying. It just means I will have to revisit the Top of the Rock some other time.

The centerpiece of Rockefeller Center is the 70-floor, 872-foot (266 m) GE Building at 30 Rockefeller Plaza (“30 Rock”)—formerly known as the RCA Building—centered behind the sunken plaza. The building is the setting for the famous Lunchtime atop a Skyscraper photograph, taken by Charles C. Ebbets in 1932 of workers having lunch, sitting on a steel beam, without safety harnesses. The 840-foot (260 m) drop lies below. (Source: Wikipedia)
