NYC – The Arrival

There were a lot of firsts when we arrived in New York City. To reach our hotel, we had to ride the subway and then walk a few blocks. I had never ridden the subway before. It is crazy how fast they are! There was a lot to take in while we headed to our hotel. I wanted to take so many pictures, I didn’t know where to begin! I knew once we checked in and got out to really explore, I would have plenty to photograph! These are the first few photos I took while we made our way to the hotel.

NYC Teaser

Here is a little teaser from my recent trip to New York City! It was my first time visiting and we went on my birthday weekend! My life long friend flew in from Ohio and came with my husband and I to celebrate. It was a great birthday! I took 978 photos over the course of two days! I have a lot to go through so to start off, here are my favorite three!

This is the globe sculpture in Columbus Circle created by Kim Brandell. It is directly in front of Trump Tower. Donald Trump tried to get his name put across the globe but the city said…um, no.
This is Belvedere Castle located in Central Park. Belvedere Castle was designed in 1865 for no other purpose than to sit there and look pretty. Later starting in 1919 and until this day, the National Weather Service began taking weather measurements from the castle to determine rainfall and wind speed and direction.
These sculptures were created by Jim Dine and were inspired by Venus de Milo. They are located at the Waterfall Plaza. This piece is entitled “Looking Toward the Avenue”. They are made of bronze and sit atop a delicate water fountain.

Check back soon for more photos from my trip!

What could possibly go wrong when wondering down long hallways in a huge deserted hotel!? Danny…?

Travel to: The Palace Theater

Last week, I was finally able to visit the Palace Theater in Albany, NY. I’ve heard many people talk highly of it and I had an opportunity to check it out for myself.

For my husband’s birthday, I got him tickets to a Rob Zombie concert. It was a great show
and we had a blast.

The theater was amazing! It was ginormous! It was built during the depression in 1931 and was the largest theater in the city. It still has the old fashioned architecture which is a marvel to look at. There were paintings throughout the theater that were stunning as well.

I didn’t have an opportunity to photograph the outside, unfortunately. Being that it was a big name concert, professional photography gear was not permitted inside so I could only use my phone to take pictures. I’m glad I could at least get these photos though!

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek into the Palace Theater. If you’ve never been there, I am now one of those people that highly recommends it.

Rob Zombie put on an amazing show! Honestly, it was the best concert I’ve ever been to. What’s the best concert you’ve been to and where was it held? Share your story below in the comments!

Until next time,

“Now raise your goblet of rock. It’s a toast to those who rock!”
