I couldn’t believe it — this afternoon it was 61 degrees in Manhattan! Oh, and it’s February 1st. Either that’s unbelievable, or insanely freaky.
I pack my lunch every… single… day… and after doing this several weeks in a row, I needed a break. So, I took myself out for a $4.50 burger at (can you take a guess?) Shake Shack. There’s a Times Square location that is only a few blocks from my office and the line here is surprisingly short! I gobbled down my burger and then strolled through Times Square to get some “fresh” air. (The air was as fresh as you could get in the middle of New York City.)
I always avoid Times Square because of the packed streets and tourists who don’t look where they walk. It takes forever to get through the crowds. But today, it was either fairly empty or I was just so happy to be in 61 degree weather in the middle of winter.
I rarely take a lunch break. But today, I just couldn’t miss out on such an unbelievably beautiful day!
Check out a few Times Square (and lunch) photos I took. Some are rather dark, but who cares — just take a look at the gorgeous blue sky above the buildings!
