Day Two - After lunch - Fifth Avenue

Hi there - Day two after lunch - was a wander up Fifth Ave after lunching in the Marriot Hotel overlooking Central Park and watching these beauties all queuing up to take people around the park.

 
$6 a minute = over $300 for an hour ride round -
which is how long they said a tour would take.
 That's why we walked around the park
 

The miniature sauce bottles brought with our lunch - how cute



After leaving the park and crossing W59th St to head up 5th Ave - you have the Plaza Hotel
and a real life NYPD car - oh wow how I loved that car.
(I used to watch NYPD blue on the telly)
We were in New York from the 1st December, hence the Christmas lights
 
 
Look at those for giant candy canes! (not the candy canes you could eat)
 
 
Tiffany & Co
 
 
 
Harry Winston Department Store

 
What's going on here??
 
 
Ahh they were opposite here as word had it -
HE was in there
 
 
We crossed the road and in we went
 
 
More press and media inside.
Your bags were x-rayed for anything suspicious you may have in them. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
All very garish, gaudy and over the top.
Out we came and carried on up Fifth Ave
 
 
Tommy Hilfiger
 
 
Cartier - This was my favourite

 
Saks Fifth Avenue Department Store
 
 
Entrance walkway to the Rockefeller Centre
 
 
Rockefeller Centre

 
 
Hiding in amongst the foliage was this little chap
 
 
Loved these tights
 
 
Window display
 
 
This owl opened her wings to reveal her babies
 
 
On down the road and round the corner, we came across this building which is used for basketball, ice hockey, pro wrestling, boxing, concerts and there is also a theatre.
On the day we were passing there was an ice hockey game going on, so in we went for a look around
 
 
 
 
This is a model of the arena - we didn't have tickets so couldn't go in
 
 
lots of security
 
 
 
New York Rangers were playing
 
 
We spotted this lovely church opposite
Madison Square Garden
 
 
On up the road and look what we could see - more about this another day!!!!!!!
 
Thanks for popping by
