BITS OF CHRISTMAS IN NYC

Posted on: Friday










Why does this time of year always seem to fly by so very fast?  It feels as though yesterday was Monday morning, and now we're heading into the weekend (the last weekend before Christmas!). I suppose this feeling might have something to do with being a family of two working parents, in the food and entertainment industries, and this being one of the very busiest times of the year for both of these industries in New York City.  With my two jobs in Brooklyn, Gaby's nightly jobs working with the big shows in Times Square, and Biet's babysitters in downtown Manhattan, we have been commuting quite a bit these past few days.  And while much of our pre-Christmas week has been spent running and working and commuting instead of relaxing with family, I am not complaining. Because hopping subways and buses from neighborhood to neighborhood also means getting to see the many sides of the city all done up in their Christmas glory.  New York City during the holidays has a certain way of washing over even the most tired sleep-deprived Mama and making her smile ear to ear. And little Biet? Forget about it. When we walk past the lights and the trees and the horses and the music all around, her eyes widen and her face glows and she gazes up and whispers, over and over, "wow."

  1. I can't believe you captured a beautiful shot of one of those steam poles! That is some seriously talented photography! AND you got a shot of the light up ballerina! I didn't know they were out during the winter, I thought they only danced in the Columbus Circle fountains during spring! This post made me smile very much :) Happy Holidays!

    1. Thanks Kerry! The steam poles are everywhere right now. The ballerina was a lone dancer on Central Park South, just ballerina-ing and twirling down the sidewalk with her date. Amazing to see!

  2. I love, love, love that first shot SO much!! I can't believe it's Christmas next week either. I told Gus yesterday, "In a little over a week it will be Christmas!!" Nope. Not true at all. Enjoy your hustle and bustle this most wonderful time of year. xo

    1. Every season brings out another side of the city. I guess that is why it never feels old. :)

  6. Hi! I just love all the pictures you have taken! When I am in NYC I am mostly trying not to get hit by a cab :) I have never attempted to take pictures. Yours have inspired me to take some next time we go.
