It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.... In NYC

In my opinion, Christmas time is the best time to visit New York City. Everything is decorated and there is even more hustle and bustle than usual. The weekend before last, our family hopped on the train and went up for the day. We had a fabulous time.

 There were so many people! You could barely walk down the sidewalks!! This is the intersection between St. Patrick's Cathedral and Rockefeller Plaza.

Grand Central Terminal. Thousands of people! Hence the expression:
"Geez, it's like Grand Central Station in here!" It really was!!

Christmas Tree at Penn Station

St. Patrick's Cathedral

On such a cold and blustery day, it's fun to sit and sip hot chocolate at an outdoor cafe and do some "people watching".

We stopped into M & J Trimming AND Tinsel Trading. Dangerous! Thank goodness I hadn't brought my purse- hubby had to pay for everything so that kept my spending in check! I got some satin ribbon and striped grosgrain ribbon, AND we found beaded trim for Daughter's wedding gown for only $20 a yard- a steal in my opinion (especially after you've seen what the bridal boutiques charge). Afterwards, knowing how much he'd spent and seeing my little tiny bag, he asked, "Is that all you got??"  Yes, I replied, it doesn't look like much but it's a treasure to me.

So that was our trip to the City. Hope you enjoyed "coming along" with me.....


  1. I love NY at Christmas. I have not been there in a very very long time, but I still remember the beautiful window displays and the lights and fun. Thanks for a walk down memory lane.

  2. I've been right after Thanksgiving and it is beautiful! Some day I hope to take my children down. Thanks for sharing your trip with us!

  3. What a great day you had! I've not been there in about 9 years now....but I do enjoy it with all the decorations.

  4. I don't think I've ever been...but what do you expect from a southern gal? LOL What fun y'all had - and the trims! They'll be gorgeous! I sure hope you show us that beautiful dress when the time comes! :)
