Christmas in New York City


New York City is sparkling at Christmas time! Tonight, I took a stroll on Fifth Avenue to enjoy the beautiful holiday lights. The Empire State Building is lit up in gold and blue!


How about that gorgeous New York City sunset?


  Do you recognize this sparkly and bright star?


 It sits atop the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center!


The tree is surrounded by angels playing trumpets.


 Below the tree, tourists from around the world ice skate!


Colorful toy soldiers play trumpets, too.


Oh so sweet ... all I want for Christmas is chocolate.


 On Park Avenue, more lights brighten the sky.


 What a delightful stroll. Time to catch the train back home!
Enjoy and have a lovely weekend!

Wishing all my wonderful readers a joyous holiday season, full of love and hope.

  6. The holidays in New York always have a special place in our imaginations. Maybe it goes back to Miracle on 34th Street. Who knows? But these are wonderfully iconic images.
