Visitors to the Empire State Building got a rare treat when the Met Life blimp floated through NYC several months ago and made passes right outside the observation deck. It flew around and around the city for much of the day and even cruised around the ESB as the sun was setting and after it was dark. This is a series of close up photos that I took and made into a slide show.

It’s so cool how close that big air whale passed by the ESB, although that building was supposed to originally be used as a blimp dock. Due to the high winds, that idea apparently didn’t work out so well as only one blimp was said to have successfully docked.
