Posts Tagged ‘Bryant Park’

Even though the temps were warm, we could do a few wintery NYC things like ice skating in Bryant Park.  A February-break staycation is always fun when you get to catch up on city outings like this, and the rink wasn’t even crowded with tourists shockingly!

I’ve posted about all this before… all the winter city fun like the miniature trains at Grand Central Station (this year with a mural of Maira Kalman’s characters) – and the ice skating rink at Bryant Park. It was a weekend day when Zoe was taken to dance downtown with her dad, so Ezra and I had some much needed and sorely missed one-on-one time. He was – as always – my favorite little man to hang out with.

this time I was able to take him through the hallways behind this colored glass!

Whew .. a week of work is done and I have a few days to decompress before going back to work again. My blog has been a little neglected due to a hectic schedule, but my friend sent this beautiful instagram of the Orly Gender show being knitted together this week. I cannot wait to check it out this weekend. And while I was working I was back in this neighborhood again where I found tulips growing by the carousel. It was a bit stressful being so near to Times Square while the news broke that the Boston bombers had it as a second target. But at lunchtime I liked to imagine I could be in Paris when I’m in Bryant Park – especially when it’s misty and rainy, and flowers are in bloom.

Bring on the flowers and warmer weather!

I must confess… we still haven’t seen Lion King the Broadway Show. I know – it’s crazy. But Zoe is too small and Ezra has a fear of shows/movies that have anything to do with a parent dying (so that rules out most all Disney films for us, sadly.) Anyhow we were pleased to hear that there was going to be a pop-up exhibit “Inside The Lion King,” adjacent to Bryant Park in Midtown Manhattan from December 1-16. This show not only highlights the costume designs of Julie Taymor, but allows guests a chance to get behind the scenes of the popular stage production. The display includes almost 100 items – animal shadow puppets, masks, costumes, and props – that have been used on stage in the show or will be used in future productions. Visitors can see details (like the beading on Simba’s costume or the hand painted capes for example) that are normally not possible to see or touch from theater seats.

I went on a date with my little man – to Bryant Park to ice skate. This is the last week that the rink is open. It’s so unseasonably warm today in NYC that it’s hard to imagine that we were doing a cold-weather sport just days ago.
I wish I could say that we made it around the rink several times but this wasn’t the case. We got cold and very sore within the hour (and a little roughed up by the ‘winter break’ crowd). It was fun regardless and it made me realize how much I need more practice! Afterwards Zoe and her dad joined us, and we got to treat ourselves to a pickle from Pickle Me Pete and some cream-chocolate-and-berry-covered waffles at Wafels and Dinges. Yum!
