#project365 [day 65] the Rink at the Rock

The ice rink at the Rockefeller Center is a New York City Winter tradition. In the heart of Midtown, steps from Times Square and the Theater District. And thankfully it was still going in the end of March for it makes a wonderful focal point for this view of the Rock. In the foreground you can see the back of the statue of Prometheus, probably the most photographed monumental sculpture in all of NYC. Created by Paul Manship, an American sculptor, it has become the main attraction of the Lower Plaza. Behind it there is an inscription, not seen here, that reads: "Prometheus, Teacher in Every Art, Brought the Fire That Hath Proved to the Mortals a Means to Mighty Ends." by Aeschylus a Greek dramatist on the 6th century BC.
