And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure.
– Isaiah 33:6, King James Bible, Cambridge Edition
An excerpt from the biblical book of Isaiah is carved into the top of the entrance of the Rockefeller Center Building in Art Deco style. This is where we enter the Rockefeller Center Building to go up the observation center and, as someone behind me in the queue expressed, to feel like you’re on top of the world.
They ensure that the journey upwards is a spectacle. I remember that in the lift to reach the top they play a dazzling video on the ceiling which goes way to fast. Apparently this is a famous important part as 3/4 of the people in the lift had their cameras pointed to the lift’s ceiling, ready for the show to begin. I did not. The grumpy part of me thinks that these extravagant exhibitions are unnecessary. But it’s ok, it was worth it to reach the top.
If anyone knows what this next really tall building is, please tell. I still don’t know.
What a place is Central Park! It looked like an amazing park from up there. The next day we went for a jog there. No photos of that, I don’t bring my camera along to go running. If I lived New York I would go jogging in Central Park all the time.
I promise that after this I’ll only make one more New York themed post.
… Unless I manage another next trip there, whenever that may be.
Thank you for visiting!
