On a trip to NYC this December, Lou and I made a point to see the famous Rockefeller Center tree. This was no easy task. The streets were flooded with people, and our sense of direction was lacking after seven hours of walking around Manhattan. This was my first trip to the city during the Christmas season and at every turn I marveled at the absurdity of lights, elaborate decorations and intricate window displays. We weaved our way through the crowds to get a view of this 85 foot Norway Spruce covered in lights. This was as close as we dared to get, but It was worth the effort and it made for a nice bookend to our day in the city.
Happy New Year!
