‘Tis The Season…

Some people go crazy for Rockefeller Center during the holidays. We don’t mind a nice viewing from the M5 bus, but trying to wade through the crowds wrapped in waddling clothes is a bit too much. Take out 99% of the tourists, and it wouldn’t be half bad with the gorgeous tree and classic Art Deco architecture.  For a more “New York” holiday treat, we prefer Bryant Park during this time of the year. There are a few places to sit down and enjoy the park, skating rink, shops, and much more serene atmosphere (at least compared to Rockefeller Center). Throw in a trip to the NYPL Main Branch for a viewing of Patience and Fortitude all decked out in there holiday attire and a fancy cocktail down the block at The Campbell Apartment in Grand Central Terminal, and you have yourself a lovely afternoon.

The lovely skating ladies at Bryant Park.
