Sunday - Last Day of Skating Bryant Park, Flatiron History Tour, Skating, Art & Culture at Museums & Plastic Grocery Bag Ban Begins

manhattan things to do nycHard to believe this was taken in mid / late February of 2020. It seems more like what one would expect to see in April in Washington Square Park - but it was only last weekend.

I think it's an intelligent point regardless of its origins and I think it well fits the climate change deniers.

FYI - The NYC Plastic Grocery Bag Ban Begins Sunday March 1st.
