It’s been awhile but I am officially back! It has been a wild and crazy past few months. I started a new job as a third grade teacher for the New York City public school system in the Bronx. Post on first year teaching coming soon!
Last weekend, we hunkered down for the big blizzard hitting New York City. We stayed in on Saturday, watching movies, drinking wine, and playing board games. By Sunday morning, the snow stopped falling and it was time to venture out. Blizzard Jonas lived up to his name and left the city covered in a beautiful layer of fluffy white snow.
While Central Park is a great place to visit during the spring and summer months, there is something so magical about the winter. I compiled a list of things to do and see in the park during this season.
-Hike the Rambles. To be honest, I didn’t even know this part of the park existed until last weekend. It’s a peaceful and quiet area away from the crowds, where you can get lost for hours.
-Sip hot chocolate from Le Pain Quotidien. Their belgian hot chocolate is amazing and even better while walking through the snowy pathways.
-Ice Skate at Wollman Rink. Even if you are not in the mood to ice skate, it’s always fun to people watch.
-Walk through Sheep’s Meadow.
-Pass over Bow Bridge.
-Enjoy a beverage (or two) at the Boathouse. Warm up inside the restaurant as you view the beautiful outdoors.
See you soon!
