NYC – Rain makes for sudden changes
Recently, I went to see a parade –IMMIGRANT’S PARADE – but unfortunately when I got there it started to rain. I mean really rain!

So you are soaking wet and the parade gets cancelled, what to do?
Think inside. Before I went to the parade I looked up where the parade was to be held and also what other sites are nearby. I guess it is called having a backup plan.
The following is a record of my afternoon:
I arrived at the parade and found many participants seeking cover. I walked over by the Radio City Hall and realized that the parade was not going to hap
First, I headed into Rockefeller Center (nice and dry) walked underneath from 6th Avenue to Seventh Avenue. Sat for awhile had a coffee and used their bathroom.
I had read that an old Art Store had been converted into a cooperative for artists and headed in that direction.The cooperative had just opened and had only a few artisans manning their displays.
The rain kept coming so I ducked into the Sheraton Hotel . Hotel lobbies are great places to sit and rex and, if needed, use their public bathroom.
Rain continues so I am off to the Time Warner Building at Columbus Circle. Passing the Columbus Circle Subway entrance, I was intrigued by the colorful sign advertising 39 stores below in the subway lobby.
So, below I went Great use of this space and very unique shops and dry.
I decided to head for home.
Moral: No matter what the weather, go and explore!
