Often for lunch I stroll down to Bryant Park for a little mid day sun. In the summer it can get a bit crowded, especially when they close the lawn to set up the Fashion Week tent. I've heard this will be the last fashion week in Bryant Park. I think I'll miss seeing the tent go up twice a year, but I won't miss feeling fashionably inadequate during my lunch hour.
When I go by myself I often sit in the reading room and flip through a magazine while eating my Chipotle. Heaven.
