The Big Apple...

LET'S GO Put away your maps PB readers.
Let me be your guide to New York's FAB Xmas decorations!
The big snowflake at 57th and 5th avenue First we start at the corner of 57th street and 5th avenue with the BIG snowflake.
I heard people behind me saying,
"There's Dior, Channel, Gucci - where do you wanna go?"
There's also Bergdorfs and Tiffanys and Nike and Disney and, and, and...
Decorations are BIG in the Big Apple...
BIG red Xmas balls on 6th Avenue..
I liked these big green ball trees...
In front of florist Renny & Reed on 505 Park Avenue.
Very BIG nut crackers line this block on 6th Avenue.
Note the human standing to the right of the nut cracker's hand.
Very BIG indeed.
The BIG lite-up tree at RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL!
Back to 57th and 5th to look at Tiffanys decorations..
We'll see more Tiffanys tomorrow. And Bergdorfs, and..and...and...

    Thanks for the pics of NY, Carol--haven't been in a long time, and used to live up there and go all the time. I love those big green balls as trees! Those are great--never saw those before! And always loved the red balls on 6th Ave--aren't they like a fountain? Fun to see all these and reminisce. NY is such a neat place over the holidays especially...thanks for taking me there again! (my mom's friend used to be a Rockette,and her daughters both were, too! so we went to see the big Christmas show at Radio City every year--cracks me up...;))
