Christmas in the City

I thought it would be fun to share some photos from our trip to New York City a few years ago.  New York is amazing at the holidays.  The whole city is decorated and it seemed to me the whole place was filled with music too.  One of our first days there, we spent the whole day just walking through the city to see all the holiday decorations.

And the amazing store windows, decorated for the holidays.

And our evening was spent at Rockefeller Plaza.  We watched the skaters and had hot chocolate.

One evening, we stopped and had hot dogs from a vendor to tide us over before seeing the Rockettes perform at Radio City Music Hall, which is just across the street from these pretty ornaments.

Inside the Empire State Building was festive too.

And a quiet walk through Central Park.

Whenever the holidays come around, my memories of New York are always intertwined.  It was truly an amazing trip and I highly recommend seeing the city at Christmas if you get the chance.
