    G-Shock Travels/Manhattan: G-Shock Goes to the Theater - Part II

    This cube has sat in the middle of Astor Place for years. I've never really understood the point, but art, I suppose, doesn't always have to a "a point".



    Trees around Astor Place are also bedecked with lights.



    I passed by Cooper Union on my way to St. Mark's Place -- heading over to Second Avenue where the restaurant is. I've always thought of Cooper Union as an art college, but it is more than that. Abraham Lincoln spoke at Cooper Union in February of 1860. That famous speech helped propel him to the Presidency.



    I had always thought of Cooper Union as an "art college", but it turns out to be much more. "Through outstanding academic programs in architecture, art and engineering, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art prepares talented students to make enlightened contributions to society. The College admits undergraduates solely on merit and awards full scholarships to all enrolled students.....
    Founded in 1859 by Peter Cooper, industrialist and philanthropist, The Cooper Union offers public programs for the civic, cultural and practicable enrichment of New York City."

    Over to St. Mark's Place -- a famous street in the East Village.



    I'm sorry I didn't take any shots here -- I was more than ten minutes late and I was rushing.



    Heading down Second Avenue, I passed by one of the buildings in the Tisch School of the Arts -- the fine arts school at New York University (generally known as "NYU").



    The Tisch School sits on the site of the former Fillmore East -- a short lived, but iconic rock venue from 1968 through 1971. As a young teenager -- 14 or 15 -- I took the train into town from the suburbs with some friends and saw The Grateful Deal there -- in either the Fall of 1970 or the Spring of 1971. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fillmore_East

    Finally, to the restaurant! A bit pricier than most of the Indian eateries along 6th Street (which is famous for good, inexpensive Indian food).

    Great choice! Pricier - but worth it! Haven't been there in quite a while, but it is my fav on 6th St. Great story line and photos btw.

    ....New York, New York
    I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps
    And find I'm a number one, top of the list
    King of the hill, a number one

    These little town blues, are melting away
    And I'm gonna make a brand new start of it - in old New York
    And if i can make it there, I'm gonna make it anywhere

    It's up to you - New York, New York, New York....

    You did. It has fogged up several times in the last 24 hours -- we've had a real cold snap here. And there is definitely some condensation inside the watch when it goes from a very cold environment outdoors into a heated space.

    It is was 22 Degrees F when I woke up this morning and very windy. It has climbed up to 27 now -- that's -3 Degrees C. The windchill makes it feel like -8 C (or 16 F).

    Pretty cold. So far I managed to fog up almost all of my G-Shocks when riding my bike in winter and wearing them outside my jacket. I mostly don't worry about it when it's only a tiny spot on the crystal.

    Understood. I'd worry about it more, I suppose, if it were MY G-Shock!
