"Rockefeller Wealthy Heritage."

"Rockefeller Wealthy Heritage."
Dear Readers,
I really take many hours to complete one single post, especially if it is too long with special details. I am pleased to know that there are still lots of readers (audience) out there, although just a few ones show up and offer their time to write personal comments. It certainly encourages me a great deal to keep on posting articles with different subject matters, tales, thoughts, poems, and other expressions of my heart. Without my audience, I'll surely vanish into the Cyberspace, because I do not want to waste away my precious time for something that it is not  worthwhile.
Anyway, I am here today to post a very interesting topic which tells about the Rockefeller Wealthy Heritage in New York City. There are always tourists around there at all times. I personally visited the New York Fine Arts Heritage many times, and I escorted my father and my mother to those places long ago. We all love them to pieces!!
When I was a little child, I heard my parents talking about the importance of the Rockefeller Family worldwide. At the end of 1961, I was still a child when my mom heard through the News -an event that shocked the world about an American Young Explorer, Michael Rockefeller (1938-1961), the youngest son of the former U.S. Vice President back then.
At the end of the year 2012, I still remember him, and his adventures overseas after 51 years of his mysterious disappearance. Today, I am writing this article -as a tribute to his memory, which I'll divide in two parts, because it is too long for just one whole post...
Oh! By the way, I am not a photographer. I am a freelance writer, poet and lyricist. My old camera broke down, and I won't be able to replace it for a better one in the near future. I am saving all my money to buy airplane tickets to New York for my family reunion in the Spring of 2013, if that is God's will. Anyway, I have already shared plenty of my old pictures, and I don't think there will be new ones for a while.
I shall be taking a long writing break after The New Year's...
Thank you in advance for lingering with me for a while!!
Now, Today's Post...
The Museum of Primitive Art is a museum devoted to the arts of the indigenous cultures of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas as well as the early civilizations of Europe and Asia. It was founded in 1954 by NELSON ROCKEFELLER, who donated his own collection of Tribal Art.
Nelson Rockefeller was a Governor of New York at that time, and a former U.S. Vice President later on. The museum opened to the public in 1957 in a townhouse on West 54th Street in New York City. The museum closed in 1976, and its collections were transferred to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is the largest art museum in the United States with among the most significant art collections.
Its permanent collection contains more than 2 million works, divided among 17 curatorial departments. It is one of the world's largest Art Galleries located on the eastern edge of The Central Park along Manhattan's Museum Mile in New York City.
The Rockefeller Center is a city within the city. It is a complex of 19 buildings between 48th and 51st Streets in New York City. They were built by the wealthy Rockefeller Family. It is located in Midtown Manhattan between 5th and 6th Ave. This area is one of the most luxurious places in New York. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987.
