New Yorkers love nothing more than celebrating, and what better reason to celebrate than an anniversary. Here are a couple of important milestones to note in 2006:
The Empire State Building's 75th Anniversary: At over 1,200 feet tall and completed in only 2 years, the Empire State Building remains an icon of New York and one of the best ways to see the city. With new and improved waiting space, and a re-opened observation deck on the 102nd floor, the Empire State Building continues to shine in the heart of midtown.
The Tony Awards' 60th Anniversary: The Antoinette Perry Awards, or the Tony's as they are more commonly called, have proven again and again that the lights are never dim on Broadway. The 2006 Awards toasted new crowd-pleasing shoes such as Jersey Boys, The Drowsy Chaperone and The History Boys. Now that's the way to razzle dazzle!
Chez Josephine's 20th Annivesary: We don't know what we love more - that there is a restaurant dedicated to entertainer Josephine Baker, or the amazing cuisine at this theatre-district gem. Throw in ultra-fabulous host, Jean-Claude Baker (Josephine's adopted son) and any night that starts or ends at Chez Josephine is a celebration!
