After arriving at our hotel in New York City, my trusty navigator began talking about a park he saw, in passing, that he wanted to take me to. As soon as possible.
Stepping outside, into blissfully warm and muggy October sunshine, we turned right and walked straight. After three long blocks (or about nine short blocks), I was overwhelmed by what I saw. We were greeted by glorious leaves bustling under swaying branches, drenched in a golden glow.
This gathering spot was filled with humans who were nestled quietly in corners, humans who were fluttering every which way—like the songbirds beside them—and humans seeking coffee.
I was mesmerized by how rich nature felt in this moment.
We walked around the entire park, circling what (at the center) will soon be Bryant Park's winter skating rink. Rounding a corner, we witnessed a stunning couple gathering for photos, after celebrating their nuptials at the Bryant Park Grill.
And I had to check out their food. What a treat to discover the Bryant Park Grill even had a couple of organic and vegan items on their Thanksgiving menu!
