One day last week it was suggested that everyone dress up as Santa and many did.
Events: NY Botanical Gardens miniature train set, (the buildings are made out of various foods like pasta shells or nuts). It should watch out for squirrels. A smaller version in Grand Central Terminal. More events: Central Park Zoo, The Polar Express Movie, Radio City Hall Christmas Show with the Rockettes, Rockerfellow Center Tree, Teh Big Apple Circus, Bryant Park and Wolman Rink skating. Prospect Park’s is under construction. Also department store decorated windows, take a 5th avenue bus from 58 Street at FAO Schwartz, past the tree to 34th Street. Barney’s is supposed to be good at Madison Ave and 61 St.
Gus, CAN YOU HEAR ME?

The Central Park Zoo has a famous polar bear Gus 26 years old. He was born in captivity. He used to swim around backwards for hours. Newspapers said he was diagnosed as psychotic. They had a psychiatrist and paid $10,000 to make him toys. He had 2 girl friends but that was awhile ago. Relationships are difficult Seinfeld said. On his birthday all the tv crews are there and his feedings. An assistant zoo keeper told On Campus he is not psychotic.
The zoo is not worth the $12 unless it is a special event. The Bronx Zoo is one of the best in the country. Go in the spring on when more events occur.
The Polar Express 15 minute movie in 4d with Tom Hanks is there till April. It is $6 which was very good with special effects. It is at the theatre outside the Central Park Zoo so no zoo admission needed. If you ever go don’t read the next line about the special effects or it will be ruined.
[It had snow and bubbles in the theater and the chair moved and air and water are blown at you. You wear 3d glasses and the train looks like it is going to hit you.]
We are gathering a list of New Year’s Eve events. Feel free to send yours in (Robinqhood (at) Yahoo.com)
