Top of the Rock at sunset was cliche, crowded, beautiful and just perfect. Yes, the price of admission could buy you about 5 platters of chicken & rice, but please just do it. To get the full magic of being up there, come about an hour before sunset and stay for two. Alternate back and forth between the Central Park and Empire State Building views, trying in vain to determine which side is better. Take lots of pictures and laugh at how terrible flash makes you look.
