NYC – Day 4

We started our day with a walk through the 79th Street Transverse in Central Park, where we checked out some very scenic & recognizable spots.

Bethesda Fountain – as seen in the movie “Enchanted” (among numerous other films).

A bridge with a scenic view. Also in a ton of films.

The Hans Christian Anderson Statue is quite large.

After that, we headed over to Park Avenue & Lexington to grab a Subway to head to Times Square where we stood in line at the TKTS booth to get standby tickets to see the Matinee viewing of “Memphis” at the Schubert Theatre. No wonder it won a bunch of Tony’s this year – it’s a great show! We did have a bit of time to kill before the show to have a laugh at Madame Tussauds and then grab a bit of lunch at a nearby Irish pub.

In line at TKTS in Times Square.

Lots of great cheesy fun at Madame Tussauds.

We got out of Memphis and headed straight back to the TKTS line to get an ticket to see another show that evening. We then had a fantastic dinner at Brasserie, and then headed back to the theatre district to see “La Cage Aux Folles,” starring Kelsey Grammer. It was very enjoyable, although the seats were pretty scrunched & I was a little overtired.
