The famous Christmas tree is alight at Rockefeller Center. Saks Fifth Avenue has its sound-and-light show and decorated windows. Macy’s anchors the Miracle on 34th Street, and Bergdorf Goodman once again stuns with its decorated windows. People flock into St. Patrick’s Cathedral, stop to hear a choral concert at St. Thomas. Cartier and Tiffany’s come gift wrapped. Fifth Avenue is decked out for the holiday. The Rockettes dazzle at Radio City. It’s Christmas time in the city.
New York City is a wonderland of holiday lightings, festive performances, winter exhibitions, special attractions and happenings. The most fun is just walking around and taking it all in – along with a million other people, as many as there are lights.
Follow my route, up 34th Street to to the Winter Village at Bryant Park, up Fifth Avenue to Saks and Rockefeller Center, up to 57th Street, cross over to 6th Avenue passed Radio City Music Hall. Here are photo highlights:
