I went up to the 86th floor observation deck on the Empire State Building in New York City this evening and outside of incredibly long lines I noticed some interesting conversation around me.
The basic theme was what direction people where looking at and the arguments that ensued resulting in grudging realizations on the part of one of the protagonists that they were in fact in error. This was a view to the north by one geographically challenged tourist.
Its my feeling that the lines (at least 2 hours) left the tourists in no mood to truly enjoy the view.
You can see though Jersey City, NJ off in the distant right which is where I live and shoot the ESB and NYC skyline from a lot.
