NYC Top of the Rock

On a recent trip to “the city” with the best of friends and my son-in-law Evan, we checked out the view from the top of Rockefeller Center.   I had never been on the “top of the Rock” before, so this was a real treat.   There are several observation levels, but the very top is not blocked by panels of glass.  This made it the best vantage point for photographing, even though it was packed with people and was difficult to get a clean vantage point without obstructions.  Also, there were only a few platform spots that allowed for using my collapsed tripod.

These are my favorites.  We never received an “ah ha” moment of afternoon light, but clouds pleased and the textures of the buildings were great.  Looking north over Central Park was a bust, but southward was much better.
