"Ding-Dong King Kong" I'm sorry as a native New Yorker I love the Empire State Building. As a street walker...Not like thaaat... haha... you forget about what things look like from above. It's kind of incredible. The Empire State Building does an amazing job educating you on what you are looking at, which is hard to find in NY sometimes from such a vantage point.

Being a native New Yorker does not stop me from gazing up at the Empire State Building daily, among other NYC Skyscrapers. I don't take this city for granted and am forever mesmerized. As long as I can remember, back to when I was a teeny tiny little guy, I have always been fascinated with the New York skyline, and this fascination has not dissipated as I've grown older. I visited the Empire State Building several times as a child, in p...
