Sharing Christmas in NYC with you!

Every year my family and I do our annual trip to New York City to take in all the Christmas sights and decorations. It’s always a great time and we’ve got our little routine we follow. We start off in Penn Station and then walk to Macy’s and then Lord and Taylor to see the Christmas windows. Then it’s to the Research Library on 5th and 42nd to check out the exhibits and lovely reading room as well as Bryant Park, the Pond and shops behind the library.

Sadly, we got to the library too early this year and it was closed, but that made for some extra time for something old – St. Patrick’s Cathedral – and something new – a walk through Tiffany’s and Cartier to check out some bling.

While we were near St. Pat’s, we hit Rockefeller Center to see the tree, promenade and skating rink as well as the NBC store. My daughter is totally in love with PSYCH and they have collectibles from that and a number of other shows.

Then it was walk up Fifth Avenue, including Tiffany’s and Cartier (sigh, such pretty things) and over to Grand Army Plaza and Central Park. We hurried up to Columbus Circle and then pushed on until we were in Lincoln Center where we had tickets to see THE NUTCRACKER. It was lovely as allows and after a quick dinner, it was back to Penn Station and the trip home on the train.

So much to see, but it was a lot of fun. Just a bit chilly with weather in the twenties, but at least it was sunny and pretty nice outside.

I hope you enjoy these photos! If you can’t see the slideshow, you can click here to see the album.

  1. Picture me green with envy!! That is amazing. Love seeing Santa skating with everyone. The bling was out of this world. It boggles my mind how designers come up with all the ideas for the displays. Some truly talented people. I salute them. Thanks so much for sharing. I think it is wonderful that your family has these traditions. Your daughter will pass them on to her family and that is a good thing. Christmas hugs to all.

  2. Hi Caridad! I love the pictures! I hope to get to New York some day and would love to go during the Xmas season. I love the windows! Growing up in Chicago, that is one of the things that I loved to do. We would go to State Street and see the decorated Christmas windows. Not too many of those in Kansas City. Thanks again for the fab photos.

  3. My sisters and parents went to the city once during Christmas… I was away at the time and missed the fun… thanks for sharing your pics! Happy Holidays!

  4. GREAT Pictures!!!!!! I’ve never been to NY so thanks for posting these. Amazing. 🙂 I hope you have a SUPER CHRISTMAS!! I’m off to the snow mountains of Denver, Colorado! Yay! Though I’m not fond of the cold (I have THIN skin since becoming a desert rat six years ago.)

  5. Love the pics, charity. I worked right at 1359 B’way which was a few steps from that side entrance of Macy’s. Nothing like NY at christmas.
