Holidays on Ice

I call this after-work photo "Miracle (I didn't get trampled by tourists) on 50th Street."

Takes me back to my first visit to the city during Christmas 1985.

Thirty or so years ago, one late afternoon, I stopped at the East railing to look at Prometheus and watch the skaters. A woman came onto the ice -- a Brooke Astor type of about 70 in a black skating dress with gold sequin hem -- and, when "Blame it On the Bossa Nova", sung by Edy Gorme, came on, proceeded to do a dance on skate point, waving her arms back and forth, entrancing the crowd. At the end, after her applause, her butler skated out and put a mink or sable over her shoulders, and they left the ice. I love New York.
