take it from the top
On our last day of work or the Olympics, during which there really wasn't a lot to do (the closing ceremonies had already ended in real life, they just had yet to be broadcast - so we needed to be there "just in case"), a bunch of us finally took a field trip up to the "Top of the Rock" observation deck (three levels of decks actually) at the top of Rockefeller Center. It was kind of a nice way to say bye to New York, and also a really impressive view of the rivers, Central Park and other New York landmarks. These, obviously, are shots from that trek. But just to add another twist, I'm posting these in my first ever blog post from 38,000 feet. Our airplane has wireless, which was just too much for me to resist using for a post midway between Manhattan and Manhattan Beach.
