Help in identifying a mural in OklahomaCyndi's trip report!

I have the same photo of a "thought" mural (of tile, I think). If you will, please look at Day 19 of her trip report and see if you can tell Cyndi and me where it's located.

Thanks!!!

Trying to figure out where she was walking, I'm guessing some where in Rockefeller center.

Thanks GeorgiaStaten!!! Wanna try a couple more?

On Day 5, the building in the photo next to the photo of Freedom Tower.

On Day 20, the green-domed "rounded corner" building with all kinds of different window styles. That is one of my favorite photos!

Karen's right - it's @ Rockefeller Center. I remember passing by it many times so it started to bother me that I couldn't think of where it was, so I googled "thought mural new york" and got lucky - http://www.panoramio.com/photo/61604477

...looks like the mystery was solved while I was googling :)

As noted above, the mural isn't Radio City Music Hall, and it isn't a mural. It is a mosaic entitled "Intelligence Awakening Mankind", the artist was Barry Falkner, and the address is 1250 Sixth Avenue -- one block south of the Music Hall, and in effect the back of the GE Building.

The building on Day 5 is 90 West Street; you can red more here:

The building on Day 20 is 141 Fifth Avenue, at 21st Street; it is now residential, and the apartment in the dome (which is 5,600 square feet, with 6 bedrooms and six and a half baths) was sold just lat year for $12.9 million -- although they were asking $17.5 million!

Thanks GreenWhiteBlue! Once they told me 1250 Ave. of Americas, I found the Rockefeller Center website which told me that same info. It's glass!

I LOVED so many of the buildings but wanted to know more about them. I wish I had the moolah for the dome apartment!

Thanks everybody for your help!
