From the gallery: LEGO ♥ NY

LEGO  ♥ NY: These perfect Lego souvenirs are available at one of the coolest Lego stores around, the Rockefeller Center Store in midtown Manhattan. Inside the store there is a replica of Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building and various other New York City landmarks. Model kits of famous NYC buildings such as The Gugenheim, MOMA, The Empire State Building all range about $39.99 – – – these blocks, just $1.99 = perfect!


ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING . . .: A very well fed, camera shy Elvis was caught by my camera crossing 44th Street in Times Square. It wasn’t until I got home to check the photos that I noticed the big coincidence that, in that moment,  ABC television was flashing it’s neon signs advertising their news series “Nashville” on the signs above. (I don’t think ABC was desperate enough to have him do a promo for the show…).
