We are starting to wind down now. Only a few days left and only a couple of things left on our list that we really want to do. We headed to the Empire State building this morning. This building has an important significance in Liam's life as he has been fascinated with it since he was little. I'm not sure why but he just loves this building so for him to visit and go to the top he was really really excited. In New York there are street vendors on every corner selling tickets to the Hop On Hop Off bus, broadway shows, comedy shows - you name it. There a also people dressed in costumes from Mickey Mouse, to the Hulk to the naked Cowboy or naked girls wanting money from you to have a photo taken with them. It's a bit sad really. Anyway as we made our way to the Empire State Builidng we came across a vendor who sold us our tickets, we decided to take up his offer to purchase another entry to an attraction for I think about $20 and the boys chose the new One World Trade Centre. When you go up these buildings the elevator ride is amazing. The Rockefeller Centre lift had a clear view on its roof as you travelled the many floors. The Empire provided history of the building. The views from atop were amazing. Being in the midtown section of Manhattan you have clear views of Uptown and Downtown. Liam was so excited he paid an extra $20 to go as far as he could and loved every minute of it. Once we'd done the Empire it was a short subway ride to the One World Trade Centre. Again another fascinating lift ride starting with a video on the walls of houses and then buildings as you climbed up 1200 plus feet to the top. We were shown to a room where a video played of different scenes of New York and then the screens lifted to reveal the view from the Trade Centre. Mind blowing is an understatement, I really can't put it in to words. As the building is located in the Downtown section of Manhattan you were given views of the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, New Jersey and Uptown to the Empire State Building. I am so glad we did this, it is an experience I will never ever forget. We had a drink in the bar and headed back to the hotel to get ready for the Baseball which was at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. The best part of the night was the subway ride which was about 20 minutes of being sardined into the train and I mean sardined. You didn't have to worry that you couldn't hold on when the train took as as the people surrounding you were holding you in place. I was talking to a guy on the train and he said he goes to the game all the time and has never seen it like this. It was hot, sweaty but a lot of fun. We made it to the match, had great seats and were happy that the Yankees had won 3 to 0. It's a very slow paced match, bit like cricket, but very social in that everyone in the crowd was talking to everyone, even if they didn't know them. Not as good as the football but I'm glad we have seen it. Another subway ride back - not as bad as the one on the way and our day in the Big Apple has ended.
