It's pretty cool to see people skating there in person.  There's such a crazy mix of those who can hardly stand up on skates and those who can skate backward into a spin.

NYC is more fun at Christmas.

I like Bryant Park too ('behind' the main New York Public Library building).

I was there the Saturday after skating opened this year, just by chance.  (It was also just a couple days before the hurricane).

I live in LA and I like it enough.  Hard to believe people will pay thousands to come see our palm trees, but hey, don't let me stop you.   :D

The last time I was in Denver, I had to walk about a mile out of my way to get around that construction near the train station.   :angry:
