Day 4 - Streets of New York city - 9/11/13


 Broadway is always full of people, loud, lively, and there is always something going on there.  If you come to New York you have to go see a least a show on Broadway and that's what we did and we decided to see Phantom of the Opera.


In front of the Majestic Theater.

Sign for the Phantom of the opera.


Phantom is the longest running show in Broadway history.


Celebrating their 24 years and there are still a lot of people going to see the show


Camera are not allowed inside but I was able to take a few pictures before someone saw me....

The Phantom of the Opera is a musical with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Charles Hart with additions from Richard Stilgoe. The play is based on the French novel Le Fantôme de l'Opéra by Gaston Leroux, its central plot revolves around a beautiful soprano, Christine Daaé, who becomes the obsession of a mysterious, disfigured musical genius.


Opening act. 

The famous Chandelier.

In the 1st act story goes: In 1911 we find ourselves at an auction where some stuff of the Paris Opera House is being auctioned. One of the buyers is the now 70-year-old Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny. When the famous chandelier is auctioned he explains that it is connected to the story of the Phantom of the Opera. At this moment the chandelier lightens and we are thrown back in time...

Hoa and I we really enjoyed the show and the music was really fantastic.

Time Square

Time square is a really fun place to hang around. The weather was so warm and it felt like summer still.


Lots of billboards...

The X factor billboard

The Naked cow boy.

There are so many ladies staying in line to take a picture with him.

Macy's Herald Square

Macy's Herald Square, originally known as the R. H. Macy and Company Store, is the flagship of Macy's department stores and is located on Herald Square in Manhattan.

The building's 2.2 million square feet (almost 205,000 square meters) made it the world's largest department store from 1924 until 2009.  The largest department store is now in South Korean when the chain Shinsegae opened a store of nearly 3.16 million square feet (293,905 square meters) in Busan.

 In 1978, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places as a National Historic Landmark.

The store has stood at the site for 111 years (opened in 1902)

Macy's entrance. Macy's kept the original sign on the main entrance  "R. H. Macy and Company Store"

This is actually a really nice area where people can sit outside for coffee, or rest while waiting for their spouse to come back from shopping.

Now we are just walking around... I don't know the name of this building but it looks interesting.


St. Peter's church.

I am totally shock after finding out this is a church as it is way too modern to look like one.

Saint Peter's Church is a bold architectural statement of Christianity's confidence in the future of this city. Designed by Hugh Stubbins and Associates, its exterior shape is a striking image of a new and personal urban vitality.



Another interesting building which I don't know the name...

Rockefeller Center

Lower Plaza of Rockefeller Center. 


The Summer garden at Rock center cafe is open from May to about mid October.  The Summer Garden cafe is New York City's largest alfresco cafe/bar. During the winter months the cafe is close making place for the famed ice skating rink during the winter months. T
