Scooters and Times Square


The kids are off from school this week and the weather is relatively mild. The plan: Busting out our scooters and racing around the city.

Last night we rode around the Times Square for hours thanks to all the pedestrian malls.  Broadway, between 42nd and 43rd, has less people (*google maps shows cars, but I swear there's none!) I almost felt like I was at a rollerskating rink, dodging and weaving around tourists. It's the most fun I've had in a long time. I even asked my kids to take pictures of me in my iphone because I was so happy. Didn't the pictures turn out great?! Uh, thanks kids.

Who would have guessed that scooters and Times Square were a perfect match? I just hope we don't run anyone over. Good thing it's mostly tourist down there. NYorkers would not put up with our nonsense and near collisions. In that way, scooters have redeemed Times Square for me!

I use a Razor A2 scooter. It's kind of small and the weight limit is 140 pounds--I just made the cut! FYI: It's currently only $29.99! A steal for the fun I'm having. The boys use the Mini Kick Scooters and Ella uses the Maxi. I asked Rob if he wanted one and he said, "N.O.WAY!" Scooters for adults are cool, right? He doesn't know what he's missing.

Oh and be warned: The dumplings at the Rickshaw Kiosk are gross, but also eatable, convenient, and cheap.

  2. This is built great and has very cute details. My 5 years old niece loved this scooter and it was a great transition from her three wheel scooter.
