360-degree view from the Empire State Building in New York

In October my wife Ashe and I went to New York for a week. It was exactly “like the movies”. An amazing experience.

The panorama is HTML-5 compatible so it works on iPhone, iPad and Android devices as well. EXTRA cool with an iPhone 4G or iPad2 with gyro.

We stayed at The Warwick Hotel which was built by media baron William Randolph Hearst  who is the guy that inspired the movie Citizen Kane.

Here is a view from the top of 30 Rock at night.

Speaking of 30 Rock.  Ashe and I went to see a taping of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Ashe got on TV as a game contestant!

Ashe bought a lot of clothes and I went to the world’s biggest camera store, B&H Photo Video, and bought the crazy Canon 8-15mm Fisheye lens.

Thanks Glenn!
I highly recommend going to a book store and buying one of those small travel books for New York. The one we got had a nice laminated map that you could pull out. The great thing about these books is that they have handy tips in them for each museum or site. For example it may tell you which days are busiest or what hours are busiest for certain museums.
There is also way more than you can see in one week so prioritize things.
We absolutely loved the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, it was filled with so many amazing things to see. You can spend a whole day there. Also be sure to go to the top of 30 Rock at night and the top of the Empire State Building first thing in the morning.
