This year spring truly arrived late into the tri-state area, but when it did come I truly welcomed it with open arms. When the weather warms up, I look forward to my lunch hour walks in and around my work vicinity.  Some would say I am lucky to work in the heart of Manhattan right in the heart of Time Square.  I must admit it is awesome to work centrally, means I have access to all the subways and buses I need.

This past week the weather has been nice and sunny, each day I took a 35-40 minute walk around my favorite areas. Starting with Bryant Park and the one of the world famous libraries The New York Public Library.  I’ve been working in the city for over 10 years and this was my second time, stepping in and I must tell you the next time you are in New York make sure you visit this amazingly spectacular library.
