STROLLING DOWN "THE AVENUE"...FIFTH AVENUE
Today was a gorgeous day to be in New York City.
Never mind that I started out the day in the doctor's office
having my cholesterol re-checked;
and followed that with a visit to the periodontist
to see how my gum surgery was healing.
My third and final destination was much more pleasant --
lunch with a friend.
As it was a glorious, summer-like day,
I strolled down Fifth Avenue from one appointment to the next.
|Temple Emanu-el, founded in 1845; 65th Street and Fifth Ave.|
|Looking across Central Park; 64th Street and Fifth Ave.|
|The Plaza Hotel, famous NYC landmark since 1907; Central Park West and Fifth Ave.|
|Sculpture of Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman; gracing Grand Army Plaza since 1913; 59th Street and Fifth Ave.|
|Giant bedpan at Rockefeller Center? No, a steel and fiberglass rendition of Van Gogh's ear; 49th Street and Fifth Ave.|
|Tulips have replaced the Easter lilies from my last visit to Rockefeller Center; 49th Street and Fifth Ave.|
|Half-Selfie: enjoying coffee in Rockefeller Center before my dental appointment (gums healing nicely, thank you!); 49th Street and Fifth Ave.|
