saturday we decided to take a walk down to bryant park. this is the site of one of the many holiday shopping villages around the city. there is also one at columbus circle, which has many of the same items. i wanted to check out bryant park though, since i had not been there yet. so, we walked down, through the tourist filled shopping streets of midtown. the park is in a really nice area of the city- the scale of the buildings around it is really nice.
the shops were fun too. we enjoyed a cup of hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick while we browsed. i think zach's favorite shop was the one where everything was made of metal parts and ranged in scale from small figures to a life size darth vadar. i think we'll have to go check that place out again!
there is also free ice skating at the park (rentals are at a charge) but we decided to pass, since the line was extremely long. now that we've scouted out all of the stuff, we'll be ready to start our christmas shopping!
bryant park will look very different when its time for fashion week!
