Another example of Finnish architectural touches.
NY skyline from the Statue
At the Statue they have a series of small statues of famous people involved in her design, construction, and placing. Among them is Monseieur Eiffel (and his tower) who designed her support structure so that her skin can be moved independently but she still remains upright.
Joy tried to look serious like the Lady, but couldn't keep from smiling with her carrot-torch.
I mentioned that Times Square has an M&M store. Check out their greeter.
The prime attraction in New York was going to see Mary Poppins on Broadway in the New Amsterdam Theater off Times Square.
Here is Joy, believing in the magic.
Memorial Day, we joined my parents at the Corning Glass Museum, which was our second date ever back in the day. This was one of Joy's favorite pieces. The vases/spheres were three dimensional in part because the glass is and in part because of multiple layers of glass held suspended within other layers of glass.
I liked this piece of glass because of its shadow. Even though it's just a hook holding up a piece of blue glass, it looks strikingly to me like a woman selecting a dress to wear.
If you don't want to spend the money for a ticket, the gift shop by itself is worth a visit. This is all glass. Move over plastic fruit: here comes the glass dessert tray.
And another Hy-5.
