My Favorite Things – From Times Square to Lincoln Center

Earlier this week, I headed out of the apartment with a subway ticket and my camera in hand.  I didn’t really have a destination, so when I realized I had taken the wrong local train, I wasn’t upset.   I got out at 7th Ave and Broadway and here is what I saw –

I was getting hungry, but didn’t have any money with me, so this was as close to candy as I got…

Since it was getting late, I walked north towards Columbus Circle…

And, gazed at the little blue lights…

Through which I got a nice picture of the Trump Plaza Hotel…

Then, on to Lincoln Center where I was supposed to meet my husband (he conducts for New York City Ballet, which performs in the David Koch Theatre on the left)…

And, was asked to take several pictures of tourists in front of the Metropolitan Opera’s fountain, before everyone cleared away so that I could take this picture!

  1. Great photos, and I loved the tour of NYC as it is now. I haven’t spent any time there for years! I really enjoy your little tours with dialogue!

    • Hi Pam,

      I’m happy to give you a real tour (with or without dialog) if you ever come to visit the city!

      Hope you are doing well –
      :-)Joana
