Radio City Music Hall

You have to go to Radio City they said. So i went and saw ZARKANA... from Cirque du Soleil. I think they are doing their last shows cause they are leaving NYC to move to another city/state. Anyways what can be said about Radio City Music Hall that we don't know. LOL! The place haves hsitory it is amazing no need for introduction. And yes at least once in your lifetime do go and watch a show there. I actually loved the building inside and out. I got this feeling I was back in the 1920-40 with all the decorations and lights. The bathrooms where kept like time have not passed by. A fusion with modern and old. yes loved it. 

Zarkana was amazing. I mean it is Cirque du Soleil.  Obviously I couldn't take photos of the show but it was Impressive show music and performances. Breath taking honestly. The Hall itself is gorgeous again it gives you this old vibe. Too pretty. After the show ended we walked around the streets. 

6th Ave was CLOSED they had like thousands of stands of food, clothing, music, cellphone covers, kebabs, purses, jewelry... everything on one place on the street. I had a lamb kebab with pitta bread from a Greek stand and drank plenty of Bubble Tea from various stands. My family had corn on the cob from other food stand. We asked the a female cop what was happening and she told us that they have been doing that for quite some times on different streets on the weekend. So if you live in NYC check that out.

Downtown NYC












Grand Central Station

Yes. Grand Central Station is a "hidden" gem on New York. You can actually spend the whole day there without going outside. You will find so many stores and things to do there that it is quite impressive. I have been here before but I never spent so much time on the station like I did this time. The food is AWESOME and the shops are worth to visit one by one. So if you have time DO go around the station NOT just get there and go out to the street. SPEND time inside the station. There is even an Apple store there so yes. You can do lots of stuff there. It is another world. I loved it. They sell this cupcakes on one of the food stands that are amazing the name of the place is Magnolia Bakery. Anyways if you are not into shopping or eating just walk around the station the place itself is gorgeous.








NYC Summer 2012

Yes I am in NYC with my family. You know some family quality time was needed so we escaped to New York. Today I went to Korea Town. It is amazing. Sadly thanks to all the excitement and trying to get myself together I couldn't take a lot of pictures at Korean Town. Hopefully I'll go there again next week.  Its been a long while since I posted photos so this feels nice to do. I took all this photos with my Samsung S II Epic Touch 4G so I hope you enjoy them. I didn't retouched any of them.

Places I went to at Korean Town were The Face Shop (got some cool face masks that works wonders), HMart (korean supermarket they have EVERYTHING), Koryo Bookstore (they had a great collection of the latest kpop music, dramas and books) and another place that I went but didn't get to actually try was Food Gallery 32. This food gallery place haves around 3 floors just of mini restaurants dedicated to Korean food. I wanted to try it but I have to go with someone that is willing to try the food. LOL!

After we actually "passed by" Korea Town (wish I stayed longer) we went to KyoChon Chicken (best chicken wings EVER and awesome place to just hang out) and had some lunch. I loved the place. I ordered some wings and soda all for $30 and all three of us ate. Also I got a Super Junior poster because I spent $30 there. LOL! So that was cool cause I had to spend the money anyways if I wanted to eat. Done with the food and off to Empire State Building we went. $23 dollars well spent. Loved it. If you have not done this please do it on your next visit to NY. Great photos a little windy but you will see so many different people up and that alone is awesome. No regret there. After all this walking we headed back to our point of origin and the day was almost over.

Oh! One thing the Manhattan Mall is HUGE and underground it haves like 4 floors (I don't know) and only two of them are on the street level. Once you go there you will understand what I mean. Most of the exits will take you to the subway. Quite convenient still with so many stores around it I don't understand why is a mall there.
