    New York, New York: Top of the Rock

    Rockefeller Plaza is where one of my favorite shows takes place, '30 Rock' on NBC. Though I don't think I would want to bump into Liz Lemon in real life. Maybe to look at the train wreck from a far but never be caught in the maelstrom.

    New York, New York: The Highline

    After a long day of walking, exploring, and hooligan-ing through the Met, I had a cheap dinner at Times Square (Big mistake, don't eat at the cheap Japanese place). I didn't really know what to do after eating. Then, I decided I was going to get a little lost in New York.
