Michael Jackson at the Plaza Hotel
I happened to be passing by and spied some street performers on Fifth Avenue by the Plaza Hotel Fountain, a group made up of boys of different ages (and some adults), complete with Michael Jackson impersonator, performing to music - Michael's, of course. You can often find performers in this spot, under the trees for shelter. It's a great location, at 59th and Fifth Avenue, across from Bergdorf Goodman department store, the Apple Computer Store, Central Park, and the Plaza. In the winter, my older nephew was captivated by similar street performers on a trip to midtown Manhattan at Christmas.
These boys were good, and the MJ dancer was excellent. Spectators were enthusiastic and generous when the hat was passed. For the record, they performed to "Gonna Be Starting Something".
A few more pix here.
Stay tuned for pictures from spectacular Bergdorf Goodman Windows!!!
