On Ice, in Bryant Park

Skating in Bryant Park
Photo by myself in Bryant Park.

The ice rink is all set up in Bryant Park. It was packed with people, Friday night.

From now til February, you can skate for free, if you bring your own ice skates. A huge Christmas tree stands at one end of the rink. In the background, you can see the Empire State Building, which is just a few blocks south.

Many little kiosks are arranged around the rink selling gifts and food for the holiday season. There are even outdoor seating areas for groups to sit and have hot cider. There are restaurants and outdoor bars.

In the last few years, Bryant Park has made an incredible transformation. It used to be that there was no real place to hang out in Midtown. 'Going downtown' after work meant going out to eat or have fun. Not any longer.
