Photo by myself in Bryant Park, around 41st Street and 5th Avenue.
Despite the chilly temperatures, New Yorkers like to get out during lunchtime, even to browse around on the internet.
Public open spaces like Bryant Park offer free wifi for laptop users. With the colder weather, there's no shortage of tables.
Tis the season for holiday parties. The subway rides home are sparsely attended, and everyone seems to have 'plans'.
Mark and I are adjusting Friday night to the strange sensation of being dogless. Mark dropped our puppy Rupert off at the dog sitters for the week, as our flight to Mexico leaves very early tomorrow morning.
Meanwhile, our cat, which has been chased around lately, looks perkier than usual. She can choose whichever sofa cushion to sit on, without fearing an ambush.
I'll definitely miss New York while we're away. The city is festive and exciting during holiday time, compared to the dreary months of January and February. I'll continue to post daily, digging into my stash and showing photos from our time away.
Don't be surprised to see sunny photos here, soon!
