1. Radio City Music Hall:
We all remember how stunned was Kevin when he touched down in the lovely New York City. Walking around, getting lost, and taking lots of pictures (this is the part where we wish we were Kevin). Passing by a lot of landmarks, Radio City Music Hall was one of them.
Radio City Music Hall is an entertainment venue located in New York City’s Rockefeller Center. Its nickname is the Showplace of the Nation, and it was for a time the leading tourist destination in the city. Its interior was declared a city landmark in 1978.
2. Gapstow Bridge, Central Park:
A living proof that you strangers can make the bestfriends that you could ever have! Here’s to the beautiful friendship between Kevin and the lovely Pigeon Lady that sparked at the Gapstow Bridge.
Gapstow Bridge is yet another example of traditional architecture in Central Park. The stone span curves gracefully over the narrow neck of the Pond. Facing south, it offers the quintessential view of the city, with the Plaza Hotel and other towers rising behind the backdrop of trees reflected, amidst the ducks, in the waters of the Pond.
3. The Plaza Hotel:
How could someone ever get lost and have the time of his life? Not that we’re not happy for Kevin, but oh how we wished we could’ve stayed in The Plaza Hotel and enjoy room service.
It was once said, “Nothing unimportant ever happens at The Plaza.” One of America’s most celebrated hotels, The Plaza opened its doors on October 1, 1907, amid a flurry of impressive reports describing it as the greatest hotel in the world. Located at Fifth Avenue and Central Park South, this luxury hotel was constructed in the most fashionable residential section of New York City.
4. Wollman Skating Rink:
Even the “wet bandits” can enjoy a little skate during Christmas!
Skating on Wollman Rink is a winter tradition for New Yorkers and tourists alike, so many people have tied up their skates for the very first time on this ice. Ice skating is a long-standing and beloved tradition in Central Park. Wollman Rink opened in 1950, a 33,000-square-foot venue built with a gift from Kate Wollman. With its romantic backdrop, Wollman Rink puts visitors beneath the magical New York City skyline by day, and its twinkling lights by night.
5. Rockefeller Center:
And last but definitely not least, the Christmas tree of Rockefeller Center.
Since 1931, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree has been lighting up the holidays each year for New York City residents and visitors. One of the most well known decorated Christmas trees in the United States, this tree has become an iconic symbol of the holiday season in New York City. The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is also a major tourist attraction; thousands come to New York each year to see the tree lighting ceremony, or just to view the tree during the several weeks when it is on display.
