This is the statue of Prometheus which is just above the ice skating rink. It's such a popular tourist spot, you can hear many different languages as you stand there. This was a delightfully warm evening recently, especially for March!
This was the scene on 5th Avenue as my husband and I walked to Grand Central Station to take the train back to White Plains. The building with the nice big window used to be Scribner's, a wonderful bookstore with a spiral staircase to a balcony on the second level. The store was paneled with nice dark wood, and it was an elegant, old-world destination when I was in college. Above that nice window it still says "Joseph A. Scribner's and Sons." Now it's disappointingly a bright and modern Sophora, which sells make-up or something of the sort.
So, there's a little taste of NY. It only took a minute and didn't cost a thing! What a deal.
