sunsets, new york and girls night out.

2016-08-29.-TopoftheRock_25i met up with girlfriends last night to watch the sunset over the empire state building from the top of the rock. you can’t beat that view, and at sunset, it was an extra dose of new york love i live to soak up, because i love it here, and have such new york pride. also, you can’t beat spending the evening with great ladies and good conversation, either. we walked the entire way home, with maybe a stop into anthro and sprinkles and then through central park at almost eleven pm, making it feel like we had the park entirely to ourselves, which is part exciting but also part terrifying when it’s so dark outside.

i brought my camera along and here are a few of my favorite photos from the night…


but will you look at that!


and looking north at central park! hello upper west side over there to the left!


a lot of really beautiful smiles right there.


let it be known that it’s really hard to get a group shot WITH the empire state. it’s like you have to choose. also, that place is mad crowded at sunset. everyone is smart here, it’s the best place to be around 7:30 for sure.


these two photos above i stole from my friend amanda. we believe two cameras are always better than one.

it got really crowded as the sun was setting and it was kind of impossible to see much with so many people. but i really loved seeing all of the phones and cameras raised in the air against the sunset of others taking photos that i had to snap it.


such a fun night. i know i’ve said this before, but i think the views at the top of the rock are better than at the empire state. you’re closer to the park and then you get to SEE the empire state building as you look downtown. it’s just really good. so glad to be home in new york. this place is my favorite.

    Hey Naomi! Wondering if you can tell me what kind of camera you used for these? A big DSLR? I’m coming to New York in October, but my DSLR is so heavy! I’d love to be able to capture better than my iPhone though!! Thanks!!
