I'm not one of the certain.
Sidewalk vendors were out en masse, taking up so much walk space it was a nightmare dodging other pedestrians. And some pedestrians seemed to go out of their way to slam into a human rather than step on a street vendor's poorly produced wares.
As my family will verify, I experienced an anxiety episode at 5th and something, declaring "I'm never walking on this street ever again!"
I did manage to calm down. And we had a very happy Christmas.
And I will walk on 5th again.
Just not on a holiday.
