new york city

new york city, originally uploaded by tinkerellen.

after finally finding parking we ventured on to the empire state building. i was nervous, due to my fear of heights. not necessarily being up high, more falling from up high. but the line moved quickly and before we knew it we were looking over as much of manhattan as we could see through the haze. it was an amazing experience that i probably wouldn't have done on my own. (the free tickets helped a bit too)

the rest of the day was hot. we sweat a lot and walked a lot and stopped a lot for water. we hit some smaller vendors and made it all the way to central park where we employed a bicycle tour. and then the buggy got a flat. but we found help in a couple other bike drivers and were soon on our way. then we hopped the subway and booked it out of there in time to sit through 2 hours of traffic. the big city leaves a big film on your skin at the end of the day. maybe that's why they call it the big apple.
