Continuing down Fifth Avenue after leaving the Museum of Modern Art on Friday afternoon, the girls and I came across this statute of Atlas which stands in front of Rockefeller Center directly across from St. Patrick's Cathedral. As an interesting note, when the sculpture was first revealed it was protested by Catholics who thought it was inappropriate that a statute containing a semi-nude man be placed directly across from the cathedral. Obviously the protests did no good as Atlas is still standing in the same spot some 72 years later!
Another wonderful piece of Art Deco is located at the main entrance of 30 Rockefeller Plaza - the relief sculpture of Wisdom which was completed in 1933.
From Rockefeller Center, we decided to head towards Times Square to find something to eat and on our way I caught a glimpse of one of my favorite places in New York City - Radio City Music Hall.
One last picture because I thought it was cool - this street sign is right outside Grand Central and I just loved all of the flags on it and the perspective of looking up - something you do a lot of in New York City!
