In the rain, Times Square and 15 seconds of fame

Friday, part II. Remember - you can click on the photos to enlarge them.

- So having been to the top of a building where captains of industry continue to do business, sister and I wandered into Times Square to have lunch and buy theater tickets. John's Pizza: oh yum. And the line for tickets - well, we stood in the rain, but it was all good. The young lady behind us was a citizen of France and the United States, but currently lives in Switzerland. So interesting. And we got our second choice of tickets to the Broadway show "Rain." Oh the irony.

- A blogger and her sister are displayed onscreen in this live shot of people in Times Square.

- This band was playing some jazz tune nearby - fun even in the rain. Later, we wandered off to our Broadway show "Rain" - featuring The Beatles. Lovely.

That show makes you feel as if you are in the middle of a Beatles concert. The "Beatles" perform the songs and there are screens off to the side that show the fans that appeared in audiences of The Ed Sullivan Show and other live concerts of the 1960s. They intersperse it with screen shots of people in the current audience of "Rain." And yours truly made it onto the screen - mouthing the words to "Let it Be." There will be an answer - let it be...

Lynn~ Did it rain the whole time you were there...what were some of the favorite foods that you ate? The city is alive (even in the rain!)

Are your the one carrying the watermelon? Even in the rain, I love NYC. So fun in Times Square. So loud, so frenetic. LOVE it.

Sounds like the rain didn't stop you having fun! Times Square was incredible. Unlike you, we ate in McDonalds. Sorry we aren't posh like you are your sister!

TALON said...

Sweet irony :)

Let it be - yes, sometimes that's very awesome advice!

No - just Friday and Saturday afternoon (late) and Monday (a light drizzle.)

That margherita pizza from John's and I had Peking Duck for the first time. Pretty delicious.

I just realized that's what that said. :) What??? No - we are the blue jacket and red bag right in the middle. :) I love Times Square, too.

Joe -

I'm not sure eating pizza is considered posh, but maybe it's a step up from Micky Ds. :)

Talon -

I'll say!

Cloudia -

Sure - I love visiting you in Hawaii, too. :)

Love the umbrella shot! Neat to take your pidc in a pic! I guessed you wer in the middle because you were taking a picture, facing forward. Street bands are fun, unless you have a head ache!
Love the Beatles- Is that a McCartney newer tune? Think I saw it on a show once.

Snaggle -

Granny Annie -

One of the high points of my life. :)
