ROCKETS SPRING SPECTACULAR - April 15, 2015
We walked to the White Plains train station and arrived at Grand Central Station in time to have lunch. Jerry had Chinese and I had a salad. While we were having lunch we visited with a man from Lebanon who is an industrial engineer who does consultation on the underground water, heating and power at Grand Central and other places. He has a project to replace the 8,000 man hole covers in NYC with a fiber optic security system. I gave him a #BecauseHeLives pass along card.
We took the subway to Time Square and then the Red Line to 50th Street. It is a Froehliche Tag! German for Beautiful Day, with warm temperatures, blue skies and flowers blooming.
A visit to the Metropolitan Art Museum, with real ballet dancers from the Degas painting, a huge Statue of Liberty talking head, a dance through Central Park, and dancing on the top floor of the Empire State Building are all amazing. The finale is to New York, New York. Even four elders from The Book of Mormon Musical join the show doing gymnastic moves. It was by far one of the most fantastic extravangaza shows we have ever seen.
After the show, we decided to take a City Tour bus. It was such a beautiful day that we went to the top of the open bus. Sometimes the NYC traffic was at a stand still, but we passed and listened to a lively commentary through our ear phones, and saw many famous buildings, parks, museums and even a demonstration for higher minimum wages. By the time we walked back to Grand Central Station, stopping to get a slice of pizza on the way, and then took our train back to White Plains, and walked four blocks to our Avalon Apartments, we could say it was quite a fabulous day, and we were ready for a good nights sleep.
