Want to see the Empire State Building?
Want to see it without fighting the crowds?
Then do what the locals do, do what I did when I took my friends to NYC earlier this year, buy the tickets online and save a bunch of time.
Visiting the iconic building is kind of like playing that old arcade game Gauntlet. There are a ton of lines, levels, and demons to fight and this is a great way to get past the first level.
Other time-savers include:
- Don’t take the photo- skip that line, they always come out like crap.
- Don’t waste time in the gift shops- you don’t need to carry that shit around the city all day.
- Take the stairs – if you’re in shape enough to do so.
- Skip the audio guide – do your research before going, know what you’re looking at and why.
