My friend and I r u n n o f t to N Y C on a bus trip just for something to do and to get out of the sticks for a while !
Shown on the above photo is a screen outside of the M & M store. This store is huge.
The next four photos are taken on Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center. It was really hazy on Saturday morning in NYC. It was a nice warm sunny day, though. Where I live in West Central Pa.. it was really cold and rainy on Saturday , so I picked a good day to go to N Y C.
A bird's eye view of the ball at Times Square.
Central park..as seen from Top of the Rock.
My friend, Bonnie, with the Empire State Building in the background.
The Empire State Building and lower Manhattan with a very hazy view of the Statue of Liberty.
The Ice Skating Rink at Rockefeller Center. The gal shown below skating is a very good skater and also the man shown near her. In place of the ice skating rink, they will be placing a dining area there probably next month for the warmer weather.
Grand Central Station above.. an old and huge building. Not as crowded as I thought it would be. I nabbed the interior photo from the internet. I took the outside photo of Grand Central.
Radio City Music Hall. We missed the tour for the inside of Radio City.. their tours run from 11 to 3.
Times Square above and below a photo of the outside of the Hershey's Store.
Macy's Department Store is undergoing a renovation and it was a mess inside with areas blocked off.
Below is a sight .. have you heard of the Naked Cowboy..well, here he is in the flesh.. he does have tighty whitey's on, though. He is usually seen at Times Square.
I don't know who the lady is with him.. For a little money donation, you can have your photo taken with him. He has a degree in Political Science. Type in Naked Cowboy in your search browser..
Above is a photo of the American Girl Doll Store. You can purchase a doll of any color skin, hair and eyes and any accessory you can imagine is for sale here . A lot of folks were shopping with their little girls buying them anything their heart's desired.
Above and below are murals at the Main Public Library. This library is made from marble and it is gorgeous !
My friend and I had a fun day and got plenty of exercise walking around a part of Manhattan.
Now I have to get something completed for TDIPT next Monday evening..
Have a fun day !
