December 2000 - NYC Trip
Huss and Leake in New York City! Morton had to work Friday during the day,
so the two of us took to the streets. Here we are looking down 42th
street, I believe. Madame Tussaud's in the distance.
Again, looking east on 42th.
And the infamous Times Square.
A tall building with movie ads. Just thought it was kinda cool.
Another shot of Times Square.
A building that did not look structurally sound.
The heart of Times Square.
Times Square. The atmosphere there was unreal, so much going on.
Again, Times Square. If you look you can see a girl in the lower left-hand
corner. Yeah, I have no idea who that is. Actually, we did run into
a couple of fellow Bobcats in Times Square, believe it or not.
The MTV building a couple hours before TRL went on. Since it was Friday I
thought they'd have some awesome group on, but they didn't. If you look,
you can see the group "Dream" practicing. I give them about
another month before fading into oblivion.
Planet Hollywood in Times Square.
And girls go absolutely nuts over TRL. Actually, some guys do, too.
Here we were looking across the street at the MTV building. The musical
guest still warming up. This is right about the point I got interviewed by
MTV for some special called "Hips, Lips, and Gender Benders" that airs
in January. You'll have to take my word for it, evidently Huss didn't even
think to take a picture of the actual interview. Genius.
We walked north in the city to Rockefeller Center. Here's Radio City Music
Again, Radio City Music Hall.
The famed ice arena at Rockefeller Center.
And, of course, the Christmas tree.
Near the Trump Building look north at Central Park.
Again, looking north at Central Park. Mort, correct me I'm wrong, but I
believe this is the exact spot where Bruce Willis jumped the wall (coming out of
the park) in a taxi in Die Hard With a Vengeance.
The Late Show with David Letterman.
At W. 50th looking south.
Looking south onto Times Square.
Jeff in the middle of Times Square.
The taping of TRL. People were going absolutely nuts. It was cool to
actually see it being shot.
The MTV building during TRL. You can just see Carson in the blue shirt.
More people going crazy for the camera.
