A New York Landmark

After 26 years in New York
It was about time I climbed this Landmark
and join the lanes of tourists eager to see how the city looks from the 102nd floor

Apres 26 ans a new York ,
il etait temps que je me decide a "gravir" les 102 etages de L'ESB
et me joindre au flot de touristes impatients de voir la vue!!

The building entrance on Fifth Avenue and 34th street

The beginning of the trip is already worth the cost of the ticket....

Comme quoi photographier et blogger sert aussi pour se donner du courage d'aller visiter les monuments! En même temps cela évite aux autres de se déplacer.

L'entrée est déjà assez impressionnante !

Superb capture!

Oh ben dis donc ! C'est beau là dedans !
A bientôt Marie-Noyale !
Je penserais à toi au-dessus des States à l'aller et au retour, si j'y arrive !!!!
Bisous !

Wow. when you enter in, you are already greeted with such a sight!

Marguerite-Marie June 4, 2009 at 3:48 AM  

honte à toi!!!dire que j'y suis montée le lendemain de mon arrivée à que tu n'as jamais gravi la "butte de Kerjalotte"!
allez tu nous as fait une si belle photo qu'on te pardonne.

I hope you took the elevator.... This is a lovely entrance! My grandfather took me up several times when I was little, but haven't been back up since.

I keep seeing photos of the exterior, but this is the first time I'm seeing the entrance — and I love it! Thank you so much for photographing and posting it.

Je suis sûre que si tu le lui demandes gentiment, Marguerite-Marie sera d'accord pour t'emmener sur la butte de Kerjalotte! L'altitude ne devrait pas t'effrayer maintenant que tu as cotoyé les sommets nouillorkais... (Le kitsch du hall est presque à égalité avec celui des Trump Towers, n'est-ce pas?)

No doubt it is a remarkable tourist spot!I have an amateur picture from this spot I need to confess! ;-) But nothing compares to your picture!You have a blessed talent and I'm your fan!
I love NY!

J'ai la mêmeueueueu! Ca me donne une furieuse envie de remonter !

namaki June 4, 2009 at 5:00 PM  

wow ! la première fois que j'y suis montée , let me think ... it was in 1969 ... coming from the Emerald coast in Brittany ! What a shock then ! J'attends les photos de la vue avec impatience ! ;-)

I remember seeing at when I was about eight years old but I can't remember if we climbed it, I think we did but I can't be sure.

J'y suis montée en 1982, je ne me souvenais plus du hall d'entrée.Bonne fin de semaine.

As the perfect tourist I was also at the top the day following my first arrival ... some 44 years ago! I must admit that I was never at the top of the Tour Montparnasse after 35 years in Paris! But, I have been to the top of the Eiffel Tower, which is not the case of many Parisians! Have a nice weekend!

Virginia June 5, 2009 at 3:07 PM  

Well Peter you're on for the Tour Montparnasse! WE're not walking but we will take that fine elevator.

M-N, there's a meeting here WEd. Wish you were here. Your photo today is superb as always.

My WV is BOTTLE as in bottle of vin??HA

Exactly the view I mentioned in yesterday's comment -:)

Love the shot of this sign. I've always loved the Empire State building and been fascinated with everything about it.

Je respecte la règle...j'ai visité l'Empire State avant toi, bien sûr, je passais en touriste.
Et c'est beau là-haut même avec un léger brouillard.

Il y a aussi..There is also...
