Holiday decorations, Columbus Circle
I love the time between holidays, from Thanksgiving to Christmas. The city is awash in lights and decorations, and the streets are teeming with people in to see the city dressed up for the season. Sometimes the crowds are a bit much, but I love the hustle and bustle it brings. Last weekend I tried to walk down Fifth Avenue to see the Rockefeller Center tree, and it was all but impossible for the crush of people heading north.
Right now, I'm working in midtown, near Bryant Park, and it's great to be able to walk outside and see the skaters and the holiday village they have set up around the park. I haven't had time to linger around the stalls, however. It's someting I've been wanting to do, to sample the various wares. It reminds me of a Thanksgiving spent in Budapest, drinking mulled wine and eating sausages.
The above photo was actually taken in January, but the decorations in the Time Warner building have been resurrected. It was great to see them back.
