City Sidewalks, busy sidewalks …… The holiday season is in full swing and the hustle and bustle of Manhattan life is chock full of things to add to your to-do lists. Office/business party invitations are streaming in that you wonder just how much merriment can you withstand in the next few weeks. But as New Yorkers, we are used to cramming everything into tight spaces and that includes schedules. It’s a whirlwind of activity. So much to see and do and it’s nice to walk the streets, feeling like a tourist in your own back yard.

Things for Free: Window displays are always worth seeing, the tree at Rockefeller Center, have a cup of hot chocolate while watching the skaters take to the ice. Stroll in Central Park. Friday night at MOMA (I think after 5:30pm) I love going in and out of the departments stores and trendy shops just to browse and see their decorations. St. Patrick’s.
Time Out NY Magazine has some interesting things to do, so check them out too. Along with a list of restaurants recommendations.
As does About.com I love the picture of Bergdorf Goodman’s window display taken by Heather Cross and licensed to About.com
So get out there and enjoy all that NY has to offer and I hope to see you at the Photography auction tonight.
