She sits 45 feet high above her visitors, her reflective surface mirroring the surrounding landscape and those that take in the view. She symbolizes beauty and connectivity, a contemporary interpretation of the mythological goddess Venus. The installation seeks to raise awareness and support for organizations like International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children.
Our hotel is on 57th and 7th, just north of the quintessential tourist attraction Times Square. The kids have their $4 flavorless hot dogs and while sitting in the center of the sensory-overwhelming digital billboards pronounce it the best hot dog ever. We make our way south to 42nd Street. We see Aladdin, a dazzling show that captivates us all. East is Bryant Park. Remnants of the holiday fair remain. We find a cozy spot with cocktails, churros and a great view of the ice skating outside.
