NYC: Rockefeller Center – Radio City Music Hall
Image by wallyg
Radio City Music Hall is an entertainment venue located in New York City’s Rockefeller Center. Known as the Showplace of the Nation, the Music Hall opened to the public on December 27, 1932. It is now home to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, a New York Christmas tradition since 1933, and to the women’s precision dance team known as The Rockettes. The theater is also used for a variety of concerts and special events.

Designed by Donald Deskey, the interior of the theater incorporates glass, aluminum, chrome, and geometric ornamentation. Deskey rejected the Rococo embellishment generally used for theaters at that time in favor of a contemporary Art Deco style. Radio City has 5,933 seats for spectators; it became the largest indoor theater in the world at the time of its opening.

The Great Stage, measuring 66.5 feet deep and 144 feet wide, resembles a setting sun. Its system of elevators was so advanced that the U.S. Navy incorporated identical hydraulics in constructing World War II aircraft carriers. According to Radio City lore, during the war, government agents guarded the basement to assure the Navy’s technological advantage. The Music Hall’s Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ is the largest theater pipe organ built for a movie theater.

In 2007, Radio City Music Hall was ranked #100 on the AIA 150 America’s Favorite Architecture list.

La radio del Mulino Bianco
Image by funadium
In 1988 the "Mulino Bianco" brand (owned by the Barilla group), specialized in cookies and other sweet things, gave to shopping points collectors this funny radio, made in the same shape of the white mill giving the name to the brand.
My wife still have it: here it is.
I took this photo because my friend RedRoby posted a very similar building, and I want to make a fake photo replacing it. But the shape of the roof is not the same, so this would require too much work. If you have a nice meadow where to place it, feel free to recycle it… and have fun!
Lens: SMC Pentax-M 50/1.7.
Lights: 2×32W power saving bulbs.

Nel 1988 il Mulino Bianco lanciò una raccolta punti per ricevere la famosa "Radio del Mulino".
Mia moglie ce l’ha ancora: eccola qui.
Ho scattato questa foto perché l’amico RedRoby ha postato una casetta molto simile, e volevo fare un tarocco rimpiazzandola. Ma la forma del tetto è troppo differente, e richiederebbe troppo lavoro. Se qualcuno ha un bel prato verde dove piazzarla faccia pure… e si diverta!
Ottica: SMC Pentax-M 50/1.7.
Luci: due lampade a basso consumo da 32W.
