Christmas in NYC
On Saturday I went to NYC for the Empire Quilters meeting. Afterwards I walked around taking some photos to show you. Above you can see the tall art-deco Chrysler Building. Grand Central Station (my destination) is lit brightly above the big taxi. This is 42nd Street looking East. If I turned around and walked West, I'd be in Times Square.
Above, you can see Bryant Park. This is behind the New York Public Library (Fifth Ave. & 42nd). The vendors booths were loaded with tempting merchandise. I'll show you some. The crowds were everywhere on Saturday, but it's a polite crowd and you get used to it.
I like Russian dolls; they remind me of my Lithuanian grandmother. The ornament below made me chuckle. This vendor had ornaments that he would customize for you with names or the date. I wonder what you would write on the ornament below.
