A must is to visit the Rockefeller Centre at night in October and watch or take part in the skating. You are also entertainment to the sophisticated people in the adjacent restaurant.
My son and I skated to Frank Sinatra singing about New York and the atmosphere was all crisp and even. Its a chance to see the City dwellers in a bohemian light and the towering building looking down from above. Well after falling over several times I was introduced to Miss Sweden no less, by her father and also by another parent ( a former 2nd World War US B52 bomber pilot) who joined in our conversation.
Strange things happen when you are away from home.
