Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in Rockefeller Center. Most people choose to show a view with the golden statue of Prometheus, and I also have some of those in my gallery, but this time I wanted to mention some other details about the area.

Some tourists don't realize that there is a whole underground "town" beneath street level. It's called the Concourse, and it's a very busy place for locals and tourists alike. On this lower level there is a post office, over 20 shops, and 20 places to eat. Most of them are casual dining spots, but two are fine dining: Rock Center Café, and The Sea Grill, (shown in this photo). These finer restaurants are on opposite sides of the ice skating rink, and they have large windows facing the ice. You can have a nice (and expensive!) meal, while looking at Prometheus and watching the skaters go by.

At lunch time, office workers stream out of the buildings above and into the Concourse without ever having to go outside. It is connected to all of the main buildings that make up Rockefeller Center, as well as the subway station with the same name.

It's just a simple photo, but one that captures the mood of this spot. :-)
