Christmas in New York City

Moving to the East Coast right before the holidays wasn't the easiest thing I've ever done.  We were going to be away from home for the holidays and we didn't know what to expect.  Now that we are almost to the New Year, I can safely say that this place is magical and I'm so in love with the holiday season in the big city.

My parents were here for the weekend before Christmas and we had an absolute blast.  The weather was crazy warm which allowed us to play outside all weekend.  We took one of those obnoxious double decker tour buses throughout Manhattan.  The pictures we took in the last month won't really give you the whole picture, at least it will provide you with a little motivation to figure out how to get yourself to New York City for the holidays at least once in your life.

Here are some of my favorite Christmas places:

Hi Mom, Hi Dad!

Did I miss anything?  I don't know if we could have fit anything else in, but there's always next year.  Maybe next year there will be snow on the ground, but I'm definitely not complaining about the 70 degree weather.  


  1. Wow! Beautiful!
    That house is really something!
    Wishing you a Happy New Year

  2. I've only been in NYC once, but I think I need to come around Christmas time! It looks amazing!!

  3. I love love love love looking at Macy's windows.

    I adore Rockefeller Center but hate the crowds.

    You need to go to Rolf's for a drink. It's Christmas'd to the max. It's in Gramercy.

  7. You took some amazing pictures that really show off the NYC spirit during the holidays! Living here I have been to and seen all of those. After all these years I still get a rush from it!
