After you come through the entry, this is the sitting area of the lobby.

Saturday, January 30, 2010

When you walk in to the Plaza from Fifth Avenue, this is the entrance, but not the lobby. Later for that, nor is it the original entrance, that is on 59th (AKA Central Park South), I will be showing you that as well.

Another Palm Court view with a glimpse of Eloise in the background.

Thursday, January 28, 2010

The spectacular Palm Court which was once THE place in New York to have tea, but is currently closed because, of all things, union issues. And glowing in the background is the Terrace Room from previous posts although those french doors to it are not usually open like that.

More Plaza Hotel fish, took shots today I will start to show tomorrow.

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

One last detail shot from the Terrace Room at the Plaza - for now.

Monday, January 25, 2010

Here is a detail of the cherub motif on the walls of the Terrace Room.

Sunday, January 24, 2010

The Terrace Room again, those doors open onto the Palm Court.

Saturday, January 23, 2010

More Plaza, this is the Terrace Room, which opens up off of the Palm Court, and many weddings and celebrity events happened here. A Liz Taylor (in her chinchilla hat) and Richard Burton interview, and one with Marilyn Monroe during which her dress strap notoriously broke.

Was in Chelsea today and walked by the river, still looks a lot like this.

Thursday, January 21, 2010

A favorite, this was when I knew I might be good at photography.

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Don't think I've posted this Chelsea moon image, know I wanted to.

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

So not only is the camera acting up, I went to do some work on my art website and it was gone. Jupiter in Pisces is supposed to be beneficial.

Another golden oldie, a storm over Jersey with a distant orange ferry.

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Bummed about my camera, but happy to see the older images again.

Saturday, January 16, 2010

My Greatest Hits continue, here is the Empire State Building at Dusk.

Friday, January 15, 2010

Yeah, yeah, it's the same spot, but at different times of day and year.

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Camera's having a meltdown, so I thought I'd do Greatest Hits now.

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

I know, a little late, we were on the Plaza tour when the figure of the Baby Jesus arrived at the creche, but I wanted to complete the series.

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Okay, enough of the Plaza for the moment, let's get back to the river!

Blurry, the guy would not hold still. I refer to him as Moby since he is over a foot long. He has a companion almost as big, they dominate the pool and pictures. And yes, they stick their heads way out of the water and will bite you if you're foolish enough to put you finger near them.

Saturday, January 9, 2010

You can see the back of the escalator reflected in this among the fish.

Friday, January 8, 2010

Yes, I know, it's a blur, but I really like it because it's a beautiful blur.

Thursday, January 7, 2010

The base of the escalator has a fish pond wrapped around it. Couldn't decide which picture to use, so I'll post them all over the next few days.

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

Back to the street level, here's the lobby and escalator to Demel's Cafe.

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Another view of the marble stairs as we head back to the ground level.

Monday, January 4, 2010

One lit chandelier seen in mirrors in the dark Terrace level ballroom.

Sunday, January 3, 2010

This shot's the vaulted ceiling above the first level of the staircase.

Saturday, January 2, 2010

Same staircase as yesterday, only seen looking back from the floor.

Friday, January 1, 2010

The marble staircase up the back way to my lunch time writing nook.
