View Full Version : Christmas in NY

after getting to NYC around noon . My DH, DF and I headed for Rockafellar Center to see the tree and the ice skaters .
We thought it being a Monday, we might try to ice skate :point: but it doesn't matter what day of the week it is at this gorgeous time of the year .

it was then off to FAO and the last time to see WOD . :sorry: Update on WOD closing , they are moving to Times Square, but will now sadly be a Disney Store .
I bought aFAO Schwartz soldier bear in the box for Kierstyn . . Shes still little but she will grow into it . Its really cute ! I hope it doesn't scare her when it pops up .

After the WOD , we went to St Patricks Cathedral . Where I Lit three candles . One for my fathers birthday which it was the 14th . One for Jim's father that his meds for severe depression will kick in and One for Pat & Kim .
Afterwards for which I don't have pictures .We walked by the 5th Avnue Saks windows and walked through . It's Amazing ! We went to The American Doll Store . Wow, was it packed !!! Santa is bringing me Rebecca Rubin . She resembles me and my DH got her silver wire rimmed glasses .
Build A Bear ... did Frosty a few years back and DH has him , so off we went to get the accessories , scarf, pipe , and broom . I made a velvet bear with a red velvet Mrs Claus dress and Granny hat . I could have spent a small fortune in there . They had a German Edelweiss outfit on a blue bear... it was sooooo cute ... and they had the FAO soldiers outfit . I might have to hit the one at our local mall . I'll take pics of them under the so you can see them .

After BAB, we found Carmines . We checked in and it was a 45 minute quenue, but too our surprise we only waited 20 - 25 minutes . Although it was busy , we got great seats . I took a picture of our view . We had penne with bolognese meat sauce . It was so good . Sally and I had a martini and Jim had a beer .
After dinner , we went back to see the lights and the tree to say good bye to another year gone by .
I hope you enjoyed my mini trip report . Merry Christmas from NYC !

New York City is a massively diverse five boroughs. Many people consider Manhattan the sum total of the city and that is completely wrong. :) The Village, Brooklyn, Chelsea Market, The Bronx (rumble in the Bronx anyone :D :D ) all sorts of places come together to comprise what has been called the greatest city in the world.

I've not visited enough cities to say that with any conviction, but do believe it to be true given the few others I've visited! :D

NYC is simply incredible and has more to offer around the clock than any other place I've ever been. :yes:
