[Main Part]

Following the previous post, I will continue to walk around Midtown area.

Times Square

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.

Rockefeller Center

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.

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.ニューヨーク ブロードウェイ Imperial Theatre1

[Closing]

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.
