AMERICAN Dollars??

So the Sis wants to do all the things people who visit New York want to do (and therefore all the things people who live in New York go out of their way to avoid). She requested a trip up to the top of the Empire State Building. I went online to check out ticket prices, and sweet baby Jesus in a basket, to coin a phrase--thirty freaking dollars!

And, to add insult to injury, they break it up--it's only $14 to get into the building, but if you want to go to the top (and frankly, why else would you be in the building, unless you worked there?) it's another $16. Sneaky, huh?

Bastards. MoMA's only $18, for crying out loud. I couldn't quite bring myself to pay that much money to get vertigo.

So, instead, we went to Times Square. Sigh.
