And We're Springing!

There are a few weeks in New York between breathtaking cold and unbearable hot when the outdoor seating area has opened and chairs are filled with people, faces baking in the afternoon sun. Sweaters are shrugged off and sunglasses perch on newly bronzed noses. This sunshine and warmth seems foreign after months of sleet and snow and gives New Yorkers a nudge of exhilaration, the kick they need to duck out early, take extra long lunches to stroll around. After such a long and heavy winter, it is hard to believe that spring and then summer are almost upon us, but the tables tell it all. A day of sun is just what we need to turn our frowns upside down. It's impossible to be a pessimist with rosy cheeks and freckled shoulders, and the streets all full of smiles.
