Reality: The Empire State Building
It’s not even the tallest building in the world anymore. So, you wait in line to go all the way up to the top, you get there and what do you see? More people. So many people that you’re going to have to wait to get a spot on the fence so you can see the city.
In truth, if you have the time and patience, the view is stunning. It’s not every day you can see one of the world’s greatest cities like a bird would. The view of Central Park alone is worth it.
