Hey. Just from the tittle “favourite place in the world” you might expect some moving article about how my favourite place in the world is wherever I im with my family/boyfriend/girlfriend/friends or whatever but nah. My favourite place is popular tourist attraction located in New York city – Top of the Rock.
I visited this place 2 years ago, 20 July 2016. I spend summer in america traveling and basically having the best time ever. You can read about my time in New York city and what I did there to made me fall in love with the city in this article HERE.
For those of you who are not familiar with this attraction – it’s a 70 floors high skyscraper in New York city and highest floor has 360 degree city view deck available for tourists.
Why Top of the Rock ?- it’s so mainstream, every fashion/travel/food/or whatever blogger took picture there and you can find tons of same style photographs on instagram. It’s quite expensive (30-36$ depending on season and time) to get there and it’s always so crowded up there.
Well – for me – the beauty lies in th fact that so many people consider this place beautiful and worth taking a shot and memorizing forever. All of the people who were there at that same moment saw the same breathtaking sunset as I did – as we were there in times from 6-9pm. Pink sky turning darker and city lights turning on. Unforgettable.
Privacy ? In 6 million city ?
Hell yes – there is very low chance you’re gonna randomly meet same people every day, that this people would recognise you or your family like a small town-people in a place I grew up in. Not that your action don’t matter, it’s just there is so much going on in big city, focus change so don’t take it too seriously. I’m just a sucker for big cities with high buildings, grey color, tons of people, tourists blocking the way, flashing lights from cameras, different languages, places to see, ever-changing never boring.
New York left the biggest impression on me.
The moment of peace and strange life fullness I felt sitting on some stony pole at 70 floor of Rockefeller center watching the sun set over New York city – city that never sleeps convinced me that this is my all time favourite place in the world. I have not traveled as much as I want to (yet) but I’ve been blessed with more than most of the people and no other place made me feel so fine like Top of the Rock – NYC
Thank you for your attention
