Sharing a Moment, in Times Square

Times Square, nyc
Photo by myself in Times Square.

A couple lounged in some of the chairs scattered about in the pedestrian area of Times Square. There were crowds milling about, gawking at the billboards and LED screens.

The seating areas and closed off streets are a recent phenomenon. Under Mayor Bloomberg, portions of Broadway have been closed around Times Square and Madison Square Park. There hasn't been much of an affect on traffic, though.

We've been having unseasonably warm weather here. Thursday was slightly humid and brightly sunny, with highs near 73F (that's 22C). All the flowering trees are abloom, much to the dismay of those with allergies.

Usually March is a cool and clammy month.

Funny to see people sit on a place where earlier you had just to stuck out your hand to get it ripped off by traffic. Thanks for showing.

It seems we have a sudden worldwide change of seasons. Nature and we are a bit confused about it, but enjoy it.

Kitty its funny you say that March can be a cool and clammy month because many of people in this delightful scene seem to be both - (mini skirts V jackets and jeans and boots) :)
