2 Dec

My sister, boyfriend, and I wanted to do something Christmas-like for sister’s last day in the city. Ice skating in Rockefeller Center was a natural choice. It was already decorated for the holidays with the massive tree waiting to be lit. This is the opulent Swarovski Crystal star that they put on top of the tree every year. Unfortunately, ice skating at Rockefeller Center is apparently close to $30 a person. We headed down to Bryant park where there is also a skating rink. Our luck was not good this day, as there was a line around the corner to get in. Not all was lost, though. We bought souvenirs at a cheesy shop, visited the main New York Public Library, and played Bananagrams over delicious cocoa at a small cafe in Midtown.
