Photographer's Note

Every year between November and January a special "Winter Village" is set up in Bryant Park. It usually includes a large, outdoor holiday market, including numerous food vendors, a pop-up lodge and restaurant, an ice-skating rink, and a Christmas tree.

This year, of course, things are a bit different. There is no lodge, no food vendors, and a very limited number of outdoor shops. The ice-skating rink, though is mostly the same. The only difference is the limited number of skaters that can be on the ice at the same time. Normally the ice would be packed with people skating so close that they almost bump into one another.

Even though the Winter Village is toned down this year, I still enjoyed the atmosphere. You can skate while being surrounded by some impressive skyscrapers. The blue-green building is the Salesforce Tower. It was completed in 1974, has 41 floors, and I've always liked its colorful, glass facade. :-)

In the WS is another view.

Stay safe everyone!
