Today was fine and sunny (though here that means very chilly - max of about 7 not allowing for wind chill) so we headed up the top of the Empire State building. The view was amazing. From on the ground it really is difficult to grasp how big this city is, but from up there the stretches beyond the horizon, and you then realise that in the 3 days here we have seen so much yet still so little.
After a quick lunch on broadway we went up and visited Nike Town - 5 stories of everything Nike! Shoes were amazingly cheap, unfortunately none in a size 11.
The evening was a night of firsts - first NY burger (very good - ranks up there with Fergburger in Queenstown), then off to a Broadway Musical (my first ever musical). We decided to go with a classic, Chicago, taking advantage of the half price tickets they sell everyday at the booths in time square. The show was everything I thought a Broadway musical would be, very slick production with extremely talented performers, some big musical numbers, and some boring bits where the jet lag (my excuse) sets in and it was tempting to nod off briefly. That being said, I did enjoy it, and am even considering going to another show if we get the time.
