That's a thing right? I mean, I'm pretty sure EVERYBODY in New York goes to the parade and stands around in the crowd for 3 eternal hours RIGHT? "I was there, I wanted my encounter with Santa to be special this year"- EVERY kid there.
Yep and while I was there I took the mandatory trip to Rockefeller Plaza to see the Ice Rink and the undecorated christmas tree
I wanted to get my skate on and put on a clinic for all those rookies falling everywhere, but the price was too much: $21 with skate rental... ok maybe not too bad but I wasn't going to spend money that way and the line to get in was ridiculously long.
At least the line to get to the Statue of Liberty wasn't too long and I got a good view of the city
Overall it was a pretty chill weekend in which I traded Turkey for a slice of pizza at Charley's located right in front of Zucotti Park and the #Occupywallstreet people.
