The Stutz motors out of the Garage and onto East 43rd Street. The City is decorated for Christmas, and there’s snow on the ground. From there you catch Lexington Avenue, turn right onto 42nd Street, and left on 5th at the New York Public Library.
With a start you notice the two stone lions standing guard. These do not rise to greet you, however.
The Empire State Building is visible as soon as you turn onto 5th Avenue. Nighttime in Midtown means street parking is readily available. You now must decide your approach.
- You can try the lobby. The doorman and desk clerk are unlikely to be armed (at least, this would be true in the New York you remember). You look unusual enough to make bluffing your way in a challenge.
- You could try a service entrance, but this would be immediately suspicious.
- You could try something entirely unconventional, like rappelling up the exterior. You’ll have to supply the details for how you wish to accomplish this, however.
Please decide upon a plan of action by Friday, December 7th.
