Here in New York we had our first snow of the season today. It wasn't a good, sticking kind of snow. It was more of a wet, messy kind of snow; the kind that makes you want to curl up with hot cocoa and a good book or movie. When I saw the snow today, I was sorry that I had just finished The Cricket in Times Square, because it is exactly the kind of cozy book that today's weather called for. The classic story of friendship, is not only a great way to think about what it really means to care about someone, it is also a celebration of all things New York; Times Square, Grand Central, Chinatown, the subway, Broadway, Coney Island, and Central Park.
