The tour starts at 12:30 p.m. every weekday, led by enthusiastic volunteers in love with the grand old building. It is inspiring to hear the history, to discover the hidden delights in a structure so superficially familiar yet, really, so unknown. It is also terribly frustrating. The closing years of City Hall's first century are leaving the massive building desperately in need of care. With foundation walls 25 feet thick, it is far too sturdy to fall down or apart. But like an aging, forgotten princess clinging to a ratty coat, its dingy exterior sags pathetically.

One of the most catastrophically mis-marketed films of the year, A Little Princess deserved a better fate and a bigger audience. A visually stunning adaptation of the Frances Hodgson Burnett classic about a fanciful young girl left in a strict, stuffy boarding school when her father goes off to war, the movie is an ode to the power of storytelling. (Burnett's book, published in 1888, was titled Sara Crewe.) With production design by longtime Tim Burton collaborator Bo Welch (the Indian prince fantasies are a picture-book marvel sprung to life)

A cartoon princess from the fairy-tale kingdom of Andalasia, Giselle falls down a well, comes up through a sewer, and lifts a manhole cover to find herself - now made of flesh and blood - smack in the middle of Broadway. Both in the geographical and musical meanings of the word. Amid the hectic rush and rudeness of this Whole New World, the pilgrim in white taffeta remains undaunted in her quest for True Love's Kiss, which inspires her to song.

LONDON - A glowing Kate Middleton on Thursday christened a gigantic new cruise ship named the Royal Princess. Palace officials said it is planned as her final solo public appearance before she is expected to give birth in mid-July.
