December Lights in New York City


Just a short piece this week. December in NYC is a time of lights. So this week I took a walk through the center of the city, camera in hand. Here is some of what I saw.

I started at Lincoln Square, on the Upper West Side. The tree in the square offered a wonderful sight on a snowy day with Lincoln Center in the background.

From there I walked down Broadway to the Time Warner Center, where the colored stars were beautiful.

My walk continued east to 6th Ave. and then south towards the big tree.

The last leg of my walk was over to Grand Central Station.

 The best thing about this walk is that everything (except the ice skating) was free. No entrance fees. Nothing hidden behind fences. All you need is a warm coat, comfortable shoes, and an ability to deal with the very large crowds that are also out to see the show.
