Skyline Cathederal and bye bye

Skyline

After a very busy previous day, we needed something a little more gentle. So we headed over to what is called The Skyline, built along an abandoned subway track, it is an urban garden, that moves through Chelsea, what appears to be a rapidly developing suburb of NYC.

They have left the train tracks, in the midst of the concrete in places, and there are a few station platforms now grassed over. It is an excellent place to visit.

Around the footpath are some very varied architectural projects.

Rockefeller

We now headed over to the Rockefeller centre, seeing the Filipino Embassy (nice place on 5th Street - closed of course as it was a public holiday in Manila !), bloody civil servants !!

Then we went to look inside the Cathedral which is opposite, as it was All Souls Day, there was an organ recital going on, and the place was quite busy.

Time Square

We then walked towards Time Square, past the new stations, NBC, Fox, NASDAQ etc They were setting up for some outside broadcasts as it was the final of the very exciting World Series of baseball (Houston won in case you missed it).
