Empire State Building video clip

This video was taken at the staging area around the 80th floor, just before they take you to the 86th floor observation deck. The “Tony” referred to on the sign is the New York cab driver personality on the ESB audio guide. Apparently Tony’s brand of gruff yet detailed commentary on the surrounding cityscape is as endearing as it is informative. (I talked to somebody who has heard it—I’m told he says things like “Howya dooin?” and “Take a looksee ova dare!”)

Also ESB-related is the second picture currently shown in my Flickr widget, to the right. This is the view as you approach the Lincoln Tunnel. That is one large building.
