Scenes from the Weekend: Grand Central at 100, Bryant Park, the NYPL, the Snow in Washington Square Park

Weekends in New York City never seem to fall into the category of "a perfectly normal weekend." Something exceptional tends to occur to interrupt routines. In the case of this weekend, Grand Central Terminal celebrated its 100th anniversary. It was fun to visit. Because the terminal is so close to many other attractions, a stroll over to Bryant Park and the New York Pubic Library made perfect sense.






It was cold this weekend, too, and a constant wind made venturing out not so pleasant. Yet, a small snow came into the city on Saturday night, one of those gentle snowfalls that hushed the regular street noise of a Saturday night. An overnight snow makes for good sleep.

The snow in Washington Square Park transformed "the Village" into a little hamlet. You wouldn't even know this place was part of a big city. There's some evidence an angel visited Greenwich Village during the quiet snowy night.
