Onward my boy

This is one of the best times to be in the city: the weather was beautiful and the sun cast a golden glow across everything. As I rode my bike through the park, I couldn't stop thinking about how right everything seemed. Like, my whole life had lead me to this point. I wasn't just riding a bike through a park, I was riding into a brand new life. The breeze that blew across my cheeks also blew away my hesitations, fears, and worries. I peddled faster, just in case my old life caught back up with me. I was so tired of people doubting in me. I was tired of trying to make you love me...I was tired of loving you. I didn't want to think about the small town I had come from. I didn't want to think about how I haven't talked to my dad in years. I didn't want to think about failing school. I just kept peddling. I never wanted to stop. Above me birds danced in the sky and below me leaves rustled as I sped past them. I've heard people say that they wish they could freeze a moment of their life and live it in it forever, this was my moment. Nothing really mattered. Or, the only thing that mattered was that I was there. I was living. I am still there, riding through that park. Even now as I sit at this desk and type... I feel that cool autumn breeze rushing past me. I hear the birds and see the sun peaking through the canopy of high-rises and trees. I don't look back and I peddle faster, faster and faster.

Top of the Rock

In all the time I've been in New York, I had never gone to the observation decks at the top of Rockefeller Center. Boy, was I missing out! It was so breathtaking. These are just a few photos that I took, but they don't even begin to show the beauty of what it was like in person.

If you are planning on visiting the city, I highly recommend putting this on the list of things to do. I personally enjoy the view better than from the Empire State Building. Here are my tips for visiting Rockefeller Center...

  1. Reserve your tickets online. If you choose this option, you can show the tickets on your phone and not wait in a ticket line. Huge time saver.
  2. Make an appointment. You can choose to go at a certain time during the day. By doing this, you  will hardly wait in any line and head straight to the elevators that take you to the top!
  3. Go around sunset! I went at 5:30. I did this so I could see the view from daylight and night time. It was fun watching the lights flicker on across the city. Rockefeller Center offers a }Sun and Stars" ticket which allows you to go during the day and come back at night. By going around sunset, you save $15 a ticket! Worth it.
