Up at 6.30 to try to beat the queues at Empire State building. But no qs to beat when we got there.It was foggy. "Look up " the concierge said. We looked up. The top had disappeared into a grey mist. We couldn't waste having got up at 6.30 so bought the tickets for later after wading thru rooms full of lonely security ropes with no people to corral towards the ticket booths. Hah - hope that will save time later.
Now I'm siting in a deeply tatty clothes store Jo detoured into while we were makingfor the Skyline diner our chubby concierge friend recommended. "best breakfast in Manhatten - all the NYPD go there".
