Another state of mind
by Evans Yonson
Barcelona – The first time I was in the Big Apple, I immediately developed a really bad neck problem. Everything in New York is so high and so tall to look up to. If you happen to be in the Rockefeller Center, then problem is even more pronounced with 19 commercial buildings occupying almost 100,ooo square meters of land area. The buildings run from the 48th streets till the 51st street between 5th and 7th avenue. The famous buildings in the Center include the RCA Building, the McGraw-Hill Building, and the Barclays Capital formerly known as Lehman Brothers. At the ground level, you will see the infamous Skating Rink, the Radio Music City Hall, the Today´s Show studios.
On other parts of the city, there is Times Square area at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue between West 42nd and West 47th Streets. This is where the city shines it brightest even during the darkest winter nights in February. The lights are always on on Broadway!
Everything is huge, big, bright, high, and tall in New York. It’s like a cathedral of sorts for people. Lights and heights! Who doesn’t worship those?
