NYC: Manhattan Skyline from the Top of the Rock

On our last night in New York City, we went to top of the Rockefeller Center ("Top of the Rock") to observe Manhattan from a height. Toward the center of the frame is the Empire State Building, while the Freedom Tower lies over its shoulder, and Lady Liberty is indistinguishable in the distance.


This and other photographs of New York City can be found at the gallery: NYC.
