NYC: Part 1

Today I am posting, very belatedly, some photos from my most recent trip to New York City.
I previously shared one of my favorite parts of this past trip, but here are some more for those of you who are interested!
I went shortly before Christmas to enjoy all the New York City Christmas splendor. However,
while it was quite festive, it just didn't feel like Christmas to me. It was as if time had frozen and Christmas was waiting for us back in Richmond. I guess there's just no place like home during the holidays.
Anyway, during our stay we ate at L'asso's which was quite literally the best pizza I had ever eaten. In my life. So go there if you are ever in the area! They make the pizza right in front of you and you can watch it bake in the brick oven.
We also went to the top of the Empire State Building later in the day. I had only ever been to the top of the Rockefeller Center before, at night, so it was fun seeing things from the other side of the city during the day.
However I never need to go again. Too many people and lines. It took forever.
And then of course seeing all the window displays for the holiday season was spectacular. So elaborate and fancy.
The night ended with the tree at the Rockefeller center. Which did not disappoint. Very big and very beautiful. I couldn't help but wonder how long it took them to string all those lights on. Not a branch was uncovered...

And do you see that scarf I'm wearing in the latter half of the pictures?
Yea, I knit that while walking the streets of New York City.
Betcha never done that before!






























Part 2 coming soon!
