Cafe on the Lower Plaza at the Rockefeller Center in NYC. It looks like a great place to rest up after a day of sightseeing. In the background is the golden statue of Prometheus (incidentally it was hated by the artist who made it). In winter this area is an ice skating rink. The late afternoon light in this pic – all golden yellow and inky dark blue – must have inspired the choice of umbrellas. They switched to stripey brights in the early sixties and I think that was a mistake.
