Check out the view!
This photo op was a fun one... and one of our first 'professional' photos of the trip...
We took our serious photo, then we got to take a "falling" photo... and we were ready! We had talked about it, planned it out.. and just went for it....
This interesting looking shopping cart was at the bottom of the Rockefeller Building... we were totally going to take a fun picture with it... but the guys at the information desk across the lobby hollered "Don't Touch That!" So we stood behind it. (boring.)
St. Patrick's Cathedral
Next stop... Radio City Music Hall
We took the guided tour... the place is amazingly beautiful!
Our tour guide was "Cassy"... short for Cassin.
She definitely made the tour, well, entertaining... well, we made it fun too...
At one point during the tour, we went into a hallway with a life size cardboard set up with four rockettes. Our tour guide, Cassy, said to our group, "This is the point of the tour where you can run up and pose with these Rockettes".... and at that instant, my sisters and I were already halfway up there... ready for our moment.... and WOULD YOU BELIEVE that NO ONE ELSE wanted to get up there to take their picture???? I guess they couldn't follow such an act like ours!
The lovely "Cassy" showing us the model of the music hall that was actually used to present their vision for the Radio City Music Hall!
Later on during the tour, we actually got to meet a real live Rockette.
Unfortunately, the height requirement to be a rockette is between 5'6" and 5'10 1/2" tall.... so none of us would have made the cut... however, when I commented about our height, she did say we could still be in the ensemble... so there is hope for us YET!
We said our goodbyes to our dear guide, Cassy, who I am sure will not miss us at all, and headed toward the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) It was here that Angie and I saw Samuel L. Jackson!!! Sorry, no photos or autographs, it was a brief sighting of him walking the other direction in the museum. But it was still exciting!
The only story I have for you here, is when we were in a lower level exhibit, where there just happened to have been 3 sets of headphones for people to listen to some rockin' music... so Mom took our picture... then we immediately remembered NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY... then shortly after that we realized it was a NO PHOTO exhibit.... so we ran out of that area...
even though we were the only ones down there at the time.
From their, we walked over to the Chrysler Building...
And then a quick walk through Grand Central Station
Then it was back to our hotel for quick naps.... yes, I said naps...
And then on to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum...
(which deserves a post all of it's own)
