Christmastime in NYC

24 12 2008

Although I’ve been to NYC many many times in my life, I had never gone during Christmas time.  It was wonderful to be able to wander around Manhattan taking it all in, in spite of the cold.  Since there is so much information on NYC out there, I thought I would just share some photos.

You can’t go to NYC in December without stopping by the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. It was smaller than I had imagined, but looked just like it does in the movies.

Just around the corner was the NBC studios at 30 Rock.

With the tree at your back, you can see Saks on Fifth Avenue.

Fifth Avenue is arguably the most glamorous shopping street in the world.

Because you really need a 5 story Louis Vuitton Store.

The Sephora on Fifth Avenue is much more beautiful than the one on the Champs Elysee.

Wouldn’t it be nice to stay at the Plaza?
