"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.

We weren't sure what to buy so we got the combination ticket of the 86th and 102nd floor. The cost was $37. I figured we would be waiting in lines for a bit, which was okay since we really weren't in a rush. We were offered some type of a Speed/Sky Pass (skip the lines) by a group at the bottom of the building, but we declined (some of them were a bit rude once they realized we weren't going to bu...
