New York City is an intense place.  Here’s a softer view of all the skyscrapers from the Top of The Rock in Rockefeller Center.

Rockefeller Center

Today I’d like to wish everyone who celebrates it, a very Merry Christmas!  Today’s image is of one of the most recognizable Christmas icons in all of the US – the tree in Rockefeller Center. We ventured down last weekend (yes, the last weekend before Christmas) to check it out – and it was most definitely a ridiculously crowded and unique experience.  This is using words that are really more kind than the event deserves, it was more like battle trying to dodge people trying to make their aggressive way through the immense crowd, but despite all the mayhem I was incredibly thankful for the experience and to share it with some very special loved ones.  The tree was fairly far off in the distance, but it was a pretty cool scene (and everyone else thought so too, which prompted many stop-on-the-sidewalk-and-gawk sort of looks).  Next time I think we’ll pick a weekend earlier in the year, but I’m glad to celebrate this holiday season with a trip to NYC to see the tree in Rockefeller Center.
