Out to Lunch, in Midtown

Urban Lunch
Photo by myself, somewhere in Midtown.

Spring has sprung here in the city. Unfortunately, not everyone works near a public park.

Some buildings are designed with public space in mind, offering areas to sit and enjoy the good weather. This bank of steps of various sizes also has planters for trees.

People can perch and eat, relax and have some alone time before slogging off to their desks.

Hey! That's around the corner from my office! I hope it's nice enough for lunch out there soon.

One of the things that I love, love, love about New York, Kitty, is how people take advantage of every square inch of outdoor space.

Thanks Olivier!

Hi Robert
ha yes, these folks look mighty relaxed for a work day.

Hi Kizz
What a small world? I was walking by en route to my dentist.

It's a bit of a hike to Bryant Park from there, so I can understand how people just eat on the steps. Getting full sun during lunch is nice.

Hi Terry
We NYers are nothing if not resourceful!
