Christmas in New York City 2014

This year I decided to make the trip to New York City to see the "Tree,"  at Rockefeller Plaza, between Wet 48th and West 51st Streets, and Fifth and Sixth Avenues.
 Of course on the way we passed Macy*s department store at Herald Square, and their wonderful windows on 151 West 34th Street.

 Their windows are always magical.

 This window showed a model of the Thanksgiving Parade!
Where do they store these huge decorations?
 The Christmas balls here were giant!
 In the neighborhood is the NBC studios.
 We grew up watching SNL
 So glad that Jimmy Fallon brought the Tonight show back to NYC.

 These Salvation Army volunteers were really rocking the day away for their charity.
 St. Patrick's Cathedral on Fifth Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets.
 Lego Store
 Glittering twinkle lights on the trees.
 This wreath was stunning
 All of the birds in these windows at Anthropology in the Plaza were created with papers and fabric
 These "green" windows were by far the most interesting to be seen.

 Adorable green birds handcrafted with recycled materials

 The Great Blue Heron was amazing

 Back to Penn Station
 A great view of the Empire State Building
 This was a display inside the Amtrak level at the station. A great day and an easy trip from Long Island using the LIRR and the Subways.
