Times Square and Around Town
Here I am on Broadway outside of the famous "Lion King" musical. The lights out here are great!
My host and I had so much fun at Grand Central Station. It is NYC's main train station, and it is beautiful! The architecture is great, and it is filled with travelers going to their destinations in and out of the city.
Look at the vaulted ceilings- it's such a stunning station! If only you could see the magnificent pictures of the constellations that are in gold on the ceiling! If you look close enough, you can see them a little bit.
Here I am on the outside of Grand Central Station, with the holiday decorations!
Here I am in Rockefeller Center with the ice skaters and the large Christmas tree that they put up and light every year. It's so magical!
Here I am with a street food cart, there are a lot of these around the city. This one has lots of popular soda/drink brands like Sprite, Coca-Cola, Pepsi and Gatorade. I wonder if these drinks are common around the world as well?
I ended my evening at B.A.M. (The Brooklyn Academy of Music). Brooklyn is a borough of New York, just east of Manhattan. It is very residential, but also has some great places for culture, such as this building. You can see plays, dance performances, live bands and even independent films in this building!
