What a Fabulous Ice Skating Rink

Last Friday I walked by Dilworth Park after work.  The ice rink was jammed with happy skaters, and the lit facade of City Hall made a wonderful backdrop.  Then I turned around and saw the buildings across 15th Street, lit for a movie premiere, and the Clothespin picked out with special lights.

All in all, the space was a spectacular bowl of light.  During the day, the sense of containment is less because of the open spaces to the north, but at night it makes for a very nice town square.

Now we just need a few more tourist restaurants claiming the plaza space on the west side of 15th Street.  Rockefeller Center?  Piazza Navona?  Maybe not yet, but watch out.
