I enjoyed ice skating in Bryant Park the other night! I was pretty good + couldn’t believe how beautiful it was to be in what seemed like the nucleus of the world. The “winter village” is open every day from 7am-10 pm. The number is 212-661-6640 to make reservations or to purchase gift certificates. Skate rental is around $15. They also offer skating lessons for 30 minutes for $60 per student. Heads up – bring your gloves, coat + scarf. It’s freezing on the ice! I had hot apple cider after which was pretty great for $4.
Being in New York this time of year, I’m seeing snow literally for the second time in my life. I love it, I just really wish it wasn’t so cold! It’s around – 12 °C for my South African readers. I bought a cute fur headband from Macy’s + some leather gloves, they’ve helped a lot. Apparently Feb 15th was the coldest day in New York history in 20 years! Here are some photos from around Battery Park, Central Park, New York’s Theatre District + Jersey City.
