The City at Christmastime

I love New York City. I love it any time of year- cold and blustery, hot and sticky, when the leaves are falling, or when they're just starting to peek out of their buds... but my favorite time in NYC is Christmastime.

There's something magical about the city at Christmas. The lights, the decorations.... it makes me feel like a kid again. I was just there last weekend, and I think each time I go, I see my favorite places with new eyes.

This is Cartier, in which I have not ever been, but they decorate a little differently every year. I love the boxes all tumbling down the building.

I think the Chrysler building is my favorite building in New York. I love the architecture, the clean look... it has it's own presence among the rest of the skyscrapers.

The clock at Grand Central Station- where my grandparents arranged to meet during WWII when my grandfather had leave for 72 hours. I think that's incredibly romantic.



I like this picture... I think that may be the Plaza Hotel on Central Park that's reflected... not sure...

Me and my friends at Rockefeller Center! The must-see place for every tourist to NYC, especially during the holidays.

Update on my diabetes: Thank you for your kind comments and thoughts. The initial shock took me a little while to get over. I'm on an extra medication to help my body use it's own insulin and I test my blood sugar level twice a day. So far, I've been staying in normal levels. I see the doctor in a week.

Thanks for the wonderful pics of NYC. The story of the clock sounds like an amazing piece of family history.

Hellllloooooo!!
It's so nice to visit here again. I've been without internet and haven't even checked my email regularly over the past few weeks. What a relief to have wireless internet once again and be able to connect with my blog buddies. Your photos are great, as usual. My mother and I were in NYC a few Decembers ago. We saw the Rockettes perform at the fantastic Christmas show, and we took photos by the huge tree. It truly was magical. I agree with you about that!
I am so sorry to hear of your diagnosis of Diabetes. I know there are different kinds and levels of danger, but none of them are good news to receive. My very dear friend in CA's hubby has diabetes and has to monitor his diet strictly as well as take medication. I wish you the very best in the coming year and that includes better health.
Happy Holidays to you!! Have a very merry and blessed Christmas.
