The Most Romantic Place

Nearly every sight in NYC triggers some kind of movie memory.  Lots of my favorite shows and flicks have been staged in the City that Never Sleeps.  I was hoping beyond hope that I would meet Neal Caffrey (from White Collar, my favorite show and time-waster) in New York.  I was not disappointed.

Taylor and I wanted to see the Empire State Building, more for its cinematic infamy than anything.  There have been lots of special moments at the top of the Most Romantic Place on Earth, such as Sleepless in Seattle, King Kong, An Affair to Remember, and Percy Jackson.  On our last day in the City, the clouds finally broke, and we took advantage to go to the building and see the famous view.

The most meaningful part of the Empire State Building was the history behind it.  The Building was constructed during the Great Depression, and it was built in record time because of the abundance of willing workers.  They erected more than a flight a week, working furiously and happy to have a job.  The pictures of the working men struck me.  I can't imagine my Taylor being so anxious for a job - it hurts my heart.  I am grateful for good, hard working men.

The view did not dissappoint!  It was lovely, and it was incredible to see a panoramic view of the "Concrete Jungle."


I had my own little sweet moment with the man I love so much.
