The Colors of Christmas

Ahhh, the colors of Christmas. Right now the Empire State building is red and green to celebrate the holiday season. Just this weekend I captured the colors of Christmas at one of my favorite places to stop into.

I know they put these up every year, but the hanging decorations at the Time Warner Center are wonderful. Especially since you get a great view of Columbus Circle in the background. This is my attempt to capture the ornaments as they change color...

First Day of Winter!

With any luck, the snow will still be on the ground in Connecticut on Friday. A White Christmas is always nice (and it's one of my favorite holiday movies, and it's a great show to see on Broadway).

This is a snapshot of the snow from outside our apartment entrance. The picture was snapped on Sunday, but today is officially the first day of winter so I thought today was an appropriate day to break out the snow shot.

A look down the street on our way to get coffee:

And from the warm toasty apartment looking out (a better vantage point):

Continuing on the theme of holiday shots in New York City...

We ventured out in the snow today to our favorite little coffee place, Joe the Art of Coffee. Any excuse to use the North Face snow boots and snow pants, of course. On the way to pilates class after coffee, I snapped this shot of the Empire Dinner on 10th Ave & 21st Street. I love the retro facade and the holiday wreaths. Very holiday.

After long time ownership under it's current (now previous), the establishment is under new ownership. The group behind The Coffee Shop in Union Square will reopen with a new menu sometime in 2010.

Tis the Season!

I've been quite bad about posting these past few weeks, and there are so many wonderful holiday things to capture and post. Alas, I'm a little under the weather, so we are going to ease back in with an easy one.

This is from the Chelsea Market. I loved the overwhelming number of lights they used to decorate the arch. The market is such a little hidden gem of tasty places to eat (check out Freeman's - we've been twice now) and food stores for tasty treats and staples for your Italian kitchen. We enjoy Chelsea Wine Vau

I've discovered the all Christmas Music All the Time station in NJ, so I'm certainly in the spirit!
