It was another average day today, and I was seriously concerned I would not have any photos to post until I stumbled across a Winter Wonderland at Bryant Park. You may recall that earlier this month, I had a picture of a skating rink under construction (see Day 60: The Window Shopping). Within a matter of days, the Citi Pond at Bryant Park has been completed and is bursting with holiday spirit. Lights are glowing, the musicians are swinging with live big-band numbers, and New Yorkers have donned their skates from a spin around the ice. If this is what October is like, I can't wait to see the city all dressed up come December!
|Aw, is love in the cold, winter air? No, I don't actually know these people; I'm just stalking random ice skaters.|
|I loved the live big-band music, which gave the whole place a classically romantic feel.|
|A uch bigger rink and much nicer ambiance than the Rockefeller Center ice rink.|
