If you want to get in on a piece of action, I guess there’s no other place in New York quite like Times Square especially when dark falls. There always seem to be loads of people at every corner that I happen to wander into.
And despite being pushed by people if you don’t walk on fast enough, I kinda enjoy the vibe that Times Square brings.
We even got to catch a Broadway muscial – Priscilla Queen of the Desert! Tickets were purchased on the day itself at a discounted price. The mom and sister helped to get the tickets. Click here for more infor on how and where to purchase the discounted tickets for Broadway shows.
They say that in New York City you just might get lucky and spot a celebrity. Well, I guess it was kinda my lucky day when I spotted these guys. Of course I had to do the ‘paparazzi’ thing and share where I spotted them:
> Donald Trump filming a trailer for the latest episode of ‘The Apprentice’ at Trump Tower. Happened to be going past Trump Tower, saw the bright lights and decided to pop in for a peek.
> On Broadway! Was accompanying my mom and sis to grab a cab after watching the ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’, happened to pass by the theatre where crowds were waiting for Matthew Broderick, lead of the new Broadway play ‘Nice Work If You Can Get It’. And? Managed to get a quick shot of him. He’s pretty shy but really accommodating in signing of autographs and taking pictures with fans.
> A girlfriend recommended that I check out Pastis for some lovely French food. Apparently, reservations are pretty hard to score but my concierge did wonders and managed to pull as a last minute reservation. While dining, I kept my eyes peeled opened for some celebs for that same girlfriend managed to spot some when she was dining there before. I think I saw some but I wasnt sure, think it was one of the Baldwin brothers and Christian Bale but before I could take a closer look, they were gone. So, that I can never be sure I guess.
So, have you ever been on a holiday, got lucky and managed to spot some celebrities? Pray tell who you’ve spotted.
