I have been up up and away on a hot air balloon ride and that was fantastic, but have you ever been up to the top of the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING? It is spectacular. When we arrived the screen was flashing a 75 minute wait. Oh my gosh.....my elderly mother, my niece's husband on crutches, my niece, her four year old daughter and my sister and myself wanted so bad to go but we had already put in a full day and we were exhausted! But before we knew it (because of the crutches) we were escorted up the back elevators lickety split and we were at the top of the Empire State Building within 10 minutes. It was absolutely incredible. Even though I had spent two days viewing both upper & lower Manhattan from a double decker bus, I never realized there were soo many buildings in all my life. WOW! That is pretty amazing. I could never imagine selling real estate in New York City. Is there anyone out there reading my post that does sell real estate in New York City?? Please tell me what it is like.
