It's hard to believe that this monumental display that briefly transformed Central Park occurred ten years ago. At first I thought it was a gimmick, but once there I realized that it had transformed the park into a wondrous place and made the winter much more pleasant. What amazes me most is that we see no smart phones and no one is looking down at their puny screens nor is anyone engaged in taking selfies. People were looking and participating as a group and enjoying the event as a part of a group. Actually ten years is really not a very long time but our way of interacting has radically changed.
