This is from January 1998.
I was on a work related trip to New York and on this day we had some free time to see the city. The first thing we did was hit the Subway and ride to the World Trade Center. The experience of riding in the subway was wild and worth it in and of itself. Once we got to WTC we were amazed at how big the two towers and entire complex was. Sadly though, the observation deck was closed and we couldn’t go up. Bummed, we hopped back into the subway to go to the next best thing: the Empire State Building. Even though we couldn’t go up I’m still thankful I at least got to visit once.
