Photographer's Note

Continuando mi serie sobre New York desde otros ángulos, hoy comparto otra foto desde un ángulo a nivel de la calle para ver la entrada al complejo del Rockefeller Center desde la 5ª Avenida, a través de Channel Gardens, con el GE Building al fondo. Está tomada en otro día distinto a mi foto de ayer, y el cielo estaba muy gris y nublado.
Aquí podemos ver la entrada principal al complejo desde la Quinta Avenida, con un agradable paseo ajardinado conocido como Channel Gardens. Este nombre viene a recordar el Canal de la Mancha, pues el paseo está flanqueado por dos edificios: el inglés British Empire Building y el francés La Maison Française. Los jardines están decorados con fuentes y esculturas de peces hechas en bronce por el escultor Rene Chambellan. Channel Gardens desemboca en la Lower Plaza presidida por la escultura Prometeo de Paul Manship.
Esta Plaza, antigua entrada a las tiendas de lujo que años atrás poblaban el complejo, se utiliza como terraza de restaurante en verano y como pista de hielo para patinaje en invierno.

Continuing my series on New York from other angles, today I share this another photo from an angle at level of the street to see the entrance to the complex of the Rockefeller Center from 5th Avenue, through Channel Gardens, with GE Building in background. It is taken in another day different from my photo of yesterday, and the sky was very gray and cloudy.
Here we can see the main entrance to the complex from the Fifth Avenue, with an pleasant known landscaped stroll like Channel Gardens. This name comes to remember the English Channel, then the stroll is flanked by two buildings: the english British Empire Building and the french La Maison Française. The gardens are decorated with sources and sculptures of bronze fish done by the sculptor Rene Chambellan. Channel Gardens ends at the Lower Plaza presided over by the sculpture Prometheus by Paul Manship.
This Plaza, old entrance to the luxury stores that years back populated the complex, it is used like terrace of restaurant in summer and ice track for skating in winter.
