New Yorkers are the type of people who need a good excuse to leave the office during lunch. I should know, I'm one of the worst offenders. But getting some fresh air and a little bit of mid-day exercise does a body (and mind) good.
Next time you're feeling cooped up in the office, eyes glazed over from staring at the computer for too long, grab a sandwich and stop by Bryant Park for some free jazz piano. Every weekday, local pianists like Daryl Sherman and Kuni Mikami tickle those ivories for park goers. Concerts are always free and never overcrowded.
Classical tunes abound now through October 14, Mon-Wed, 12:30-2pm; Thurs, 2-4pm.
