Although I haven’t been to many of the great cities of this world, I believe New York City is one like no other. During the holidays, retail decorators go to great lengths to transform the city into a magical otherworld.
Although I’m not a photographer and you’ll see flash reflections, I want to show you at least a snapshot of the magic. Hope you enjoy a walk through the city.
These angels keep watch over Rockefeller Center. Their lacy wings fill the night with a certain calm in the midst of chaos.
A window in white. My favorite.
Each glance is an assault on your senses.
These nutcrackers lined nearly an entire block.
New York City does demand an intense reaction. You either love it or hate it.
This is a woman who likes her bling.
This is where I’d be dancing if I “got skinny”. So says my daughter.
It’s easy to feel like one of these flags in the city – whipped back and forth from one window to the next, enticed by one vendor to another, bumped by one person and then a hundred.
And as night falls, the real magic begins.
The memories of those who’ve gone before fill hearts and minds at Christmas and always.
If you’ve not visited New York City, you SHOULD! No better time to come than Christmas…summer is a bit hot and smelly.
