The Panoramic views From above it is creepy, with huge skyscrapers that stay at a lower height. You can see clearly many kilometers away and clearly, on a clear day, everything Manhattan, Brooklyn, and other areas of New York. During our visit we spent more than an hour circling the viewpoint.

To avoid the tail of the elevator that has to lower us back to the 86th floor, we decided to do it walking down an internal staircase. On that floor we already took the direct elevator to the ground floor where we were seeing the mural in relief and visiting the shop of souvenirs.

After leaving the building, we spent some time in the area and in souvenir shops we bought some magnets and something else to give to friends and family. We ate in a good and cozy Greek restaurant.

After lunch we went to the hotel where we connected to the internet for a while to download the photos, order them and send them to family and friends, and on the other hand, print the boarding passes of our flight back to the peninsula.

We also had time to pack our bags, and in the afternoon we took a new walk to Times Square as a farewell to this great apple. We were sitting almost three hours on the red steps watching and watching everything that happened; and many things happened, something different happened permanently.

Finally, and to complete our last day in New York, we went by subway to dinner at the Hindu restaurant that we liked so much. We only needed to catch the flight back the next day.
