Michael Jackson: Apollo Theater Memorial from Last Year

I took this picture last year near the Apollo Theater and thought it would be appropriate to share it today, on the anniversary of Michael Jackson's passing.

Did you know that the Apollo Theater has a "side"walk of fame? Among the people listed in front of the theater include Michael Jackson, Ella Fitzgerald, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Little Richard, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Patti LaBelle, Quincy Jones, and Aretha Franklin. The sidewalk was made possible by a Community Initiatives Program grant funded by the Harlem Community Development Corporation, a subsidiary of the Empire State Development Corporation.

side note: this is also the day Farah Fawcett passed away.

The intuitive interface allows you to view available dates and times, select the desired seating and confirm your reservation with just a few clicks. Thanks to this convenience, making a reservation at this popular lower east side restaurants will be as enjoyable as the dinner itself.
