START SPREADING THE NEWS – NEW YORK CITY – BRYANT PARK

Today  your    30  Plus  Teams  Tour  isn’t  bringing  you  to  42nd  Street .

It’s  cloudy  but not  really  that  cold  as the  three  of  you  walk  down  42nd  Street .

As  the  three  of  you  start  walking ,  you  notice  the  many  stores  and  movie  theaters ,  not  to  mention  all  those  people .

It  didn’t  use to  be  this  pleasant .

It  was  a  place  where  nobody  wanted  to  go  by  themselves ,  let  alone  bring  the  family .

The  movie  theaters  used  to  show  x-rated  sex  films .

Now  those  type  of  theaters  have  been  shut  down  or  made  into  stores ,  hotels ,  and  restaurants .

Some  of  them  have  remained  movie  theaters ,  just  not  showing  those  x-rated  movies .

You  walk  by  Madame  Tussaud’s ,  the  New  York  City  branch  of  the  wax  museum .

The  three  of  you  aren’t  going  here ,  though .

You  keep  on  walking  until  you  reach  another  one  of  the  city’s  many  public  parks .

It’s  Bryant  Park  and it’s  not  as  big  as  Central  Park ,  but  it’s  just  as  serene  and  quiet  despite  the  fact  that  it’s  located  on  one  of  New  York’s  busiest  streets .

You  notice  all  the  people  skating  on  a  rink  right  in  the  middle  of  the  park .

One  of  your  cousins  wants  to  know  just  how  many  skating  rinks  does  this  city  have ?

You  can’t  answer  that  question ,  but  it  does  seem  like  a  lot  to  you  also .

You’re  surprised ,  though ,  to  find  one  right  in  the  middle  of  42nd  Street  and  Sixth  Avenue ,  which  you  all  discover  is  also  known  as  Avenue  of  the  Americas .

It’s  not  even  9 am  yet ,  but  the  rink  is crowded .

Don’t  these  people  have  to  go  to  work ?

The  three  of  you  look  around  you  and  see  all  the  the  office  buildings .

You  imagine  that  once  all  these  people  stop  skating ,  they’ll  be  going  to  work  in one  of  these  buildings .

As  none  of  you  can  skate ,  you’ll  just  watch .

The  three  of  you  stop  by  one  of  the  food  trucks  and  get  some  coffee  and  a  bagel  with  cream  cheese ,  just  like  you  see  the  New  Yorkers  do .

What  a  city  this  is ,  the  three  of  you  think  as  you  sit  down  at  one  of  the  tables  to  watch  the  skaters .

No  matter  what  time  of  day  it  is ,  something  is  always  going  on .

The  day  is  really  just  getting  started ,  but  the  three  of  you  aren’t  really  in  that  much  of  a  hurry  to  get  to  your  next  destination .

All  of  you  want  to  enjoy  the  scenery  and  enjoy  your  breakfast .
