One of my favorite places in New York City is Rockefeller Center. During any kind of weather and at any time of day, it’s always bustling with activity. I enjoy it whether I’m just walking by, having lunch, or stopping to take in whatever’s happening there at the time. I’ve seen TV segments and movies being filmed, listened to live music and people-watched in the plaza. I was there this past week and felt the same excitement that I did on my first visit to Manhattan many years ago.
On that first trip, I had been in New Jersey on business and took the train from Newark into the city to meet an associate for brunch at Rockefeller Center. There was a light snow falling as we enjoyed champagne and Eggs Benedict while watching skaters on the ice rink just outside the window. I only had a few hours in the city that day and Rockefeller Center was a highlight. It left me craving to spend more time there and I feel very lucky that I’ve been able to do that.
