In New York, a Heated, Beach-Themed Bus Stop to Escape the Dreary Winter
It's snowing in New York today. Wind chill might even bring the temperatures into the single digits. Unsurprisingly, Florida's tourism industry is taking advantage.
To entice winter-weary New Yorkers, the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau has transformed one Manhattan bus shelter into an oasis. The shelter, at the busy cross-town M42 stop between Lexington and Third Avenue, features heated benches and a bright yellow, beach chair-inspired design.
On opening day, two bathing suit-clad models even braved the cold to hand out free sunglasses and MetroCards and make the case for a Florida vacation. Sounds pretty good right about now.
