LondonLatte is still in New York and I promised C1 and C2 that we could go back to the Lego Store when we were in New York City. So, since I am explaining ‘what it’s like’ to live in NY this week, that seemed a reasonable request. The Lego Store is at Rockefeller Center and what better spot to walk around, look up at skyscrapers, soak in the sights and sounds and even test our knowledge of countries with all of the 200 flagpoles that line the street square. So off we go…but now…it is raining…and I have promised LEGO.
That is that then. Any history of the family that were the Rockefellers, the Art Deco buildings that describe the architecture, and the broadcasting that shapes our views and culture, (Late Night with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Saturday Night Live, NBC News), not to mention the Rainbow Room and its cityscape views, on the 65th floor, (most recently a Cipriani restaurant but now I think a non operational Landmark?), simply do not matter. And actually, I want to get inside out of the rain as well.
When I said we were going to Rockefeller Center, C2 thought I said Legofella Center. Really? But I can’t say that I blame them on a day like today.
Inside, we play the flag game on Lego’s replica of Rockefeller Center. I suppose all is not lost but it’s not exactly what I had in mind. The model is impressive. There is even a bronzelike gilded statue in the middle. I suppose if it was Christmas time, there would of course, be a Lego tree.
Downtown with my Cuz now, she thankfully orders a pizza and we open a bottle of Chianti. I am keeping it short and sweet as promised (Short and Sweetener). I may be back later but will probably be too busy flipping through 46 pages of instructions to put together Legends of Chima. I will try another historical kid friendly walk tomorrow but no doubt need some bribery along the way. Maybe M&Ms in Time Square?
