It was cold. The fountain in the park was covered in icicles.
They had a huge ice skating rink in the park. Being that I was in New York at Christmastime in below freezing temperatures, I decided I had to rent some skates just for the experience.
Didn't plan on skating for long, but I ended up being on the ice for about two hours!
After skating, I wandered over to Rockefeller Center while looking for food.
Rockefeller Center had a bigger tree, but Bryant Park's ice rink was better!
I finally ended my night by buying a potato knish from a street vendor on the corner in front of Rockefeller Center. Earlier I went looking for the 53rd & 6th Halal Cart that I've read good things about, but they weren't there. So at midnight in the freezing weather, I decided to end my adventures with food for the night and settled on the knish to hold me over.
I've had much better knishes in the past, but I wasn't expecting too much from a street vendor. It was tasty enough. I should have bought some chestnuts too!
