Photographer's Note

The most famous ice skating rink in NYC is the one in Rockefeller Center. Yesterday there were a lot of people enjoying some time on the ice.

Rockefeller Center was built during one of the most difficult times - the Great Depression. The Metropolitan Opera was originally supposed to build their complex on the same site, but financial troubles stopped them. Between 1930 and 1939 fourteen Art Deco buildings were erected in Rockefeller Center, and another four were added in the 1960's and 70's.

With great architecture, artwork, an underground shopping and dining concourse, and, of course, the ice skating rink, this is one of the most iconic spots in midtown Manhattan.

Just to the right of this scene stands the giant Christmas tree, and the golden statue of Prometheus.

At the far end of the rink someone special is skating. Can you spot him? I'll put a close-up in the WS in case you can't. :-)
