Photo by myself in Bryant Park, at 40th Street and Sixth Avenue.
A view from a tropical vacation spot?
Not at all. It's a new kiosk and canopy set up on the west edge of Bryant Park. Sponsored by Southwest airlines, these hanging cocoon chairs offer a nice reprieve from the city.
The intimate clusters of tables and lounge chairs were filled, Wednesday afternoon.
It seems that New York is becoming ever more user-friendly. I'd heard about this addition to Bryant Park, but I didn't realize that it was more than just another food kiosk.
People were lounging on lawn chairs, some taking naps. In a true democratic fashion, you could be sitting next to a business person or a homeless person.
