Christmas in New York

Some friends and I went to New York to see the Rockettes.  Can you believe I couldn't remember if I'd seen them before?  Seems to me I went with my cousin in the late '80's for the Easter show.  Anyway, New York is always an adventure, what with the subway deaths and all.  A country girl like myself finds it a challenge to drive to New Haven, hop a train, then a subway, to see Rockefeller Center and the gorgeous storefronts and architecture.  The churches are magnificent.  St. Patrick's had scaffolding all around so I didn't take a picture.
Saks Fifth Avenue
Grand Central Station's main concourse.

Lobby of Radio City Music Hall.

Chandelier in lobby.

Stage.  There are organs on both sides.

Shoe Department at Saks.

Trump Tower.  Gorgeous.
