Looking for Superman

My parents recently let me watch Superman with Christopher Reeve.  I loved it!

Clark and Lois 2016- KidCongeniality

On Saturday they surprised me and my friend Lauren and took us to explore the News building on 42nd Street.  I was kind of hoping for a man of steel sighting but instead I saw a lot of terrific memorabilia and learned a lot about New York City.

The News building is also known as the “Daily News Building” because New York’s “hometown paper” used to be headquartered there.  The building is more popularly known as the fictional home of the “Daily Planet” where Clark Kent works.  The actual building is a beautiful art deco design by Raymond Hood and was designated a National historical land mark in 1989.  Local NY TV station WPIX has been in the building since 1948 and is still there today.

The lobby of the building houses the world’s largest indoor globe.  It is amazing!   If you are in New York City you should stop by for a few minutes. It’s a little off the beaten path but is worth it if you are a super hero movie fan.

And, you guessed it… I couldn’t resist running around in the revolving doors like Superman but the door man chased me out!  (He was watching over the globe in the photo above just waiting for me to make my move!)
