…that while normally New York is a wonderful and crazy town, New York at Christmas is a wonderful and insane town. Just when I thought I’d never seen so many people in the same place at one time before, we’d go somewhere else and it would be even worse. One of those things in life you want to do once and then say “Been there, done that.”
We went to New York with my wife’s family, which included my 6 year old niece and 9 year old nephew. We did a bunch of “kids in New York” stuff like going to the Radio City Music Hall Christmas show and going to see the tree at Rockefeller Center. The most fun thing was going ice skating at Wollman Rink in Central Park. Beautiful scenery and my niece was a complete natural at skating (it was her first time).
I think, though, the most impressive sight I saw was the Christmas house in the Bronx. Absolutely insane. Pictures don’t even do it justice. You just have to see it to believe it.
Paul, welcome back from vacation — you’ve been missed!
