Christmas in NYC

Keeping true to our tradition of changing up Christmas, we spent Christmas 2012 in New York City. I've never seen the City more crowded so I'm guessing it's not a unique destination for the holidays.

We had the ultimate "room with a view" at the Z Hotel in Queens.
Sunset over Manhattan

Another view of Queens from our room, I am fascinated by Queens.

We explored Brooklyn Heights the following morning~love tacky Christmas decorations.

Hawk sitting in a Plane tree

This sculpture is in a park near the Brooklyn Bridge caught my eye.

Locks of Love, saw these last year in Prague, these were on the Brooklyn Bridge.
Yes, we were tourists and walked across.

Central Park musicians were out in full force playing Christmas music.
This pair were my favorites.


Best part of the day; conversation with my boys, a snack and my favorite beer on tap.

Radio City...we skipped the Rocketts and went to see A Christmas Story~the musical.
Great show!

Rockefeller Center has awesome decorations!

The Angels

This view never gets old...
