Anyone been to new york in mid january?

I’m going for work and going to spend the weekend there before but what the hell can you do when its like minus 5 out?

i went when it was cold once (feb I think) - ice skating in the park with snow all around was nice

we mainly just did the normal tourist stuff but with coats and scarves on

I’m waiting for my car to be serviced and trying to drink the showroom’s espresso machine dry.

I’ve been fawning over the Giulia Quadrifoglio they’ve got on show in the hope they’ll offer me a test drive but don’t think it’s working.

I’ve been there in late January, christ it was cold. We went for nice walks up on the high line and went for lots of amazing food

Sounds about right. My friend is going to be meeting me out there for the weekend and it’s her birthday so I suspect we’ll mostly be eating vegan food and looking at stuff

I’ve just been to a lessons learnt session and learnt nothing except for the etymology of the word ‘learnt’ which I was already pretty well aware of.

can’t say i have tbh
