After arriving at our hotel in New York City, a certain someone began talking about a park he saw, in passing, that he wanted to take me to. As soon as possible.
Stepping outside, into warm and muggy October sunshine, we turned right and walked straight. After about three long blocks (or nine short blocks), I was overwhelmed by swaying branches, with rustling leaves, drenched in a golden glow.
This gathering spot was filled with people and songbirds nestling quietly in corners and fluttering every which way.
It was mesmerizing, how rich nature felt in this moment.
We walked the entire park, circling what (at the center) will soon be Bryant Park's winter skating rink.
Rounding one corner, we witnessed a stunning couple who’d just celebrated their nuptials at the Bryant Park Grill.
Where some organic and vegan items were actually listed on their Thanksgiving menu.
