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

    Finally -- over to the Public!





    Needless to say, you're not supposed to photograph the play -- but I did sneak in a shaky shot of the theater before the play started:



    I was coming down with a cold (and have one now), so I started to drag during the second act. But I liked the play. My wife was a bit more mixed about it. We both thought the acting was stellar, however.

    Time to head home.



    We walked over to a different line -- the IND -- to start the trip home. It had gotten much colder. (It has stayed that way. It is freezing here this morning.)



    Many subway stops have newstands right in the station -- and many of them are open pretty late:





    Waiting for the train:





    Back on home turf. Walking on the Upper West Side heading home. This building has a central courtyard. There are a number of buildings like this in this neighborhood. It spent much of the 80's and 90's in pretty bad disrepair, but, I think, has been renovated and is in very good shape now. Some of the apartments within are HUGE.



    More lit up trees.



    There are more and more of these little shelters around bus stops. And there does not seem to be a shortage of advertisers who want to use that space.



    Holiday decorations are up everywhere:



    More to come, I hope.....

    ....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....

    No, it is the Belnord, actually. Less grand than the Apthorp -- but it is quite large (maybe larger than the Apthorp?) and built in a similar style. You pass it if you head east from the subway stop on Broadway.

    Ahh, I knew there was another building in a similar style, but could not recall the name. My sister was married in the courtyard of the Apthorp (a friend of my mother's used to live there).

    Now my mother's brother's wife's sister lives there....

    Here's a small ton of information about the Apthorp with references to the Belnord too.

    Thanks for the great tour so far. You do a good job of capturing the NYC experience. It's gotten cold lately, so it must be even harder to take photos outside. Get well soon. I hope you feel better.
