"CENTOLIRE"

 

Very light rain continued as we walked  over to Madison Ave. and found a nice Italian Restaurant "CENTOLIRE" for lunch. 

Tuscan-born restaurateur Pino Luongo (also of Tuscan Square) opened Centolire in 2001 to honor those Italians who, like himself, came to America to start a new life.  Two dining spaces present different options:  the more cozy and quiet downstairs room or the larger, more colorful upstairs area, accessed via a glass elevator. He also has published two cookbooks.

     

Herald Square

We rode the subway from 82nd St. to 34th St. and enjoyed the tables and chairs and all of the activities in front of Macy's and on the 34th St. intersection. Herald Square is formed by the intersection of Broadway, 6th Ave. (Officially named Avenue of the Americas) and 34th St.

"Another great 'people-watching' area..."

.


      Macy's    

Macy's was founded by Rowland Hussey Macy on West 14th St. in 1857. The store's red star logo came from Macy's tattoo, a souvenir of his sailing days. When Macy died in 1877, his little store had grown to a row of 11 buildings. in 1902 Macy's acquired its present site at 34th St.

Macy's sponsors New York's renowned Thanksgiving Day Parade and also the Fourth of July Fireworks.

"Back on Herald Square to find a subway back to 42nd St."


A subway ride to Times Square... A short walk to our hotel...

Times Square 24/7 constant activity and excitement. Walked back to our hotel for early evening 'Happy Hour' and hors d'oeuvers, brief rest then walked over to 48th St. to the Walter Kerr Theatre for our 2nd Broadway Show: "A Little Night Music"
