It’s funny…the only time you see the consolations and other random stars in New York City is when you visit the planetarium at Natural History Museum…or if you look up while you walk through the main concourse of Grand Central Station.
I mean, in a city with a billion lights that never sleeps, you almost never see stars at night. Of course there is the occasional sighting of the North Star or maybe its a distant planet shining bright on a clear night. A looooong time ago…I actually took a couple of astronomy classes in college, so I know my way around a star or two. But again…seeing them in NYC… na.. that dont’ really happen. Of course…we see all types of other “stars” walking down the street and what not. You might bump into P. Diddy in midtown or Robert De Niro in Tribeca. Either way, you are more likely to see people you’ve seen on TV than you likely to see a sky full of stars.
That being said…I love the stars I see every night walking through Grand Central even if they are just painted on the ceiling.
