Paley Park, off Fifth Avenue, Midtown – delightful pocket park:
Paley Park is a pocket park located at 3 East 53rd Street between Madison and Fifth Avenues in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, on the former site of the Stork Club. Designed by the landscape architectural firm of Zion Breen Richardson Associates, it opened May 23, 1967. Paley Park is often cited as one of the finest urban spaces in the United States.
Avenue of the Americas pool W 50th St, a welcome public space in this canyon of office high-rises:
1251 Avenue of the Americas, formerly known as the Exxon Building, is a skyscraper on Sixth Avenue (also known as Avenue of the Americas), between 49th and 50th Streets, in Manhattan, New York City. It is owned by Mitsui Fudosan. The structure is built in the international style and looks like a simple cuboid devoid of any ornamentation.
Rockefeller plaza dining:
Rockefeller Plaza is a pedestrian street running through the complex, parallel to Fifth and Sixth avenues. This street was also part of the original plans for the Metropolitan Opera, and Benjamin Morris originally intended for the road to stretch from 42nd to 59th streets. Only the 720-foot (220 m) section between 48th and 51st streets was built, and the road was open in its entirety by 1937.

Exploiting the tensile properties of metal and fabric, the pods are made of three sizes of welded metal rings that create a skeleton for the fabric. The fabric is then clipped onto metal grommets as seen in the shop drawings. The tensile super structure will be welded together at the site or in spherical quadrants in the shop and delivered for final assembly.
