In a small park on the upper westside of Manhattan at West 66th Street, between Broadway and Columbus, there are tables and chairs set outside all year long, summer through winter. There are usually a few lunch wagons in the area, but mostly folks get food at one of the local delis and then come to sit in the park and watch people pass by or chat with a friend. In the summer it is hard to grab a table and chair or even a lone chair. But as you can see in the winter it is certainly a different story. I was in this area a couple days ago and there were a few people bundled up drinking coffee and nibbling on sandwiches chatting away with friends. Today though the wind was blowing, the temperature was freezing and even the pigeons were no where to be found and you had your pick of best tables in the place.
