Activity du jour: Skating in Bryant Park (in the rain!!)
I'm sure most New Yorkers would agree there is nothing quite as awful as walking through the theatre district at 7:50pm on Friday in the rain. It could be the worst combination of all time. But I tell you what... the second you walk off the streets and into Bryant Park, your heart instantly feels a little lighter. Christmas music is playing, the air smells like kettle corn, and you can hear everyone laughing around the skating pond. It is like a little oasis in the middle of chaos.
Bryant Park could possibly be my favorite spot in New York. It is amazing at every point throughout the year, but it is the most beautiful and magical at Christmas time. I love to come here early in the morning before any one else has arrived and just skate. Tonight, despite the rain and the massive amounts of middle schoolers, it was still just so peaceful. It's the perfect place to just think, to unwind, and to soak in the joy of the season.
Expect to see another post from Bryant Park! It's simply irresistible this time of year:)
