Back to NYC!!! Grand Central and Central Park tour...

3 months of Vacation in Argentina passed by like the blink of an eye... Before heading home to my lovely, paradisiac hawaiian islands I made a stop at the Fashion goddess city: NEW YORK!!! 

I did not stay as long as I stayed the first time on my way home, so before heading there I made a plan of the must see places (I didn't check out on my 1st time there).
I stayed away from the city that way I got to take the train and stopped at other NYC areas. I was lucky enough I stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Westchester way up north from the city. 

After getting myself settled I went to the Greyson train station and headed to the Grand Central Station.

I was pretty excited about finally arriving to the Grand Central, is such an inspiring place, so many movies filmed there and I can't imagine all the love stories that took place there... I was amused by the energy and so many people from all over the world all at one place:

My minion had the happiest time at the Grand Central!!! New York for me is so amusing and inspiring I walked for hours and hours straight and you won't get tired of it there is so much to see and it has so much to offer it is hard to keep up with the big apple rhythm.
Instead of taking the subway I decided to walk along Madison Avenue and headed to Central Park:

And then I arrived at my favorite park in the World... Takes more than a day to really explore it and see all the beautiful places are inside.

Right in the middle of spring summer was lovely to be there admiring the beautiful pink blossom colors of flowers and even more fun to see the chipmunks running around...

Once inside the park I was on my way to see the Bethesda Terrace and fountain and "only in New York City" I accidentally popped in an Orchestra concert (see below) it was for sure a magical moment I teared up a few times...

Bethesda Terrace became a site for an outdoor luncheon restaurant at the end of the 1960s, then became a congregating spot for the Hair generation before devolving into a drug-trafficking venue in the 1970s. The fountain, which had been dry for decades, was restored in its initial campaign, 1980–81, by the Central Park Conservancy as the centerpiece of its plan to renovate Central Park. (Wikipedia)

Bethesda Fountain is the central feature on the lower level of the terrace, constructed in 1859-64,[6] which is enclosed within two elliptical balustrades.[7] The pool is centered by a fountain sculpture designed by Emma Stebbins in 1868 and unveiled in 1873.[8] Stebbins was the first woman to receive a public commission for a major work of art in New York City.[8] The bronze, eight-foot statue depicts a female winged angel touching down upon the top of the fountain, where water spouts and cascades into an upper basin and into the surrounding pool. It was the only statue in the park called for in the original design. Beneath her are four four-foot cherubs representingTemperance, Purity, Health, and Peace.[8] Also called the Angel of the Waters.
