I went on a business trip to the U.S. and took this opportunity to made a short-trip to New York. Although the trip was just one-and-a-half-day, I enjoyed New York very much. In this article, I will write about Rockefeller Center and Broadway musical “Les Misérables” etc. as part of Day 1.

Following the previous post, I will continue to walk around Midtown area.
First, I visited Times Square. Talking of New York, I think Times Square should be a must spot to visit. As I will write about it in other articles in details, I will post some snap photos here.
For the first time in 9 years to visit Times Square.
New York City Police Department (NYPD).
A women’s group who did performance.
Around “TKTS” where broadway’s discount tickets are sold.
Then, I moved to Rockefeller Center. Rockefeller Center was developed by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. in 1930 and now becomes a complex of 19 commercial buildings such as the GE Building. There is an observation deck, “the Top of the Rock”, where you can have views of New York’s skyscrapers.
A fountain in front of the Exxon Building.
Radio City Music Hall.
The Tony Award ceremony is held every June there.
There is also a studio of NBC.
The Rockefeller Center plaza.
Near the Rockefeller Center, there is St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
I had a quick bite at a vender.
Broadway musical “Les Misérables”
One of the main purposes to visit New York was to watch broadway musicals. I have been to New York five times and whenever I visit New York, I try to watch broadway musicals. This time, I planed to watch two shows and for the first night, I watched “Les Misérables”.
The show house was “Imperial Theatre” at 45th street.
In the theater.
After the show.
In addition to “PLAYBILL”, I also bought a pamphlet.
That’s it for the article about Rockefeller Center and “Les Misérables” etc. as part of Day 1. “Les Misérables” has been played as a revival performance at broadway since 2010 will be closed 0n September 4, 2016. So, I was lucky to watch the show before its final performance 🙂
After I watched “Les Misérables”, I walked around Times Square in the evening and I will write about it in the next article.
