Well, look who’s decided to come loom over York Restoration’s walk

Empire State looming

Why, it’s the Empire State Building! In all its loomy glory.

York Restoration Corporation hasn’t scaled this fine building in years. Not since 1999 has York set foot in its lovely lobby. Or stood in its express elevator to the observation deck, where one of the only unobstructed views of Manhattan can be found.

It’s certainly worth a revisiting, that’s for sure, but what is it about time that makes big, important things seem hard or difficult? York could watch a movie tonight, or do the dishes, flip through cable, go to the gym, or work late. Feh! Shouldn’t York continue doing, at least occasionally, the things that make New York so wonderful? Even if they’re “touristy.”

Every now and again, it’s nice to experience first-hand some of the things that make NYC so unique.
