Happy Holidays, New York.
Posted on December 29, 2014
What an unseasonably warm Sunday in New York City. Although Christmas has come and gone, all of the streets and avenues of the Big Apple were alive with people who were, like us, partaking in some post-holiday fun. My sweet boyfriend bought me tickets to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular (my first time seeing the show). You know, I have lived thirty minutes away from this City for my entire life, yet at times I feel that I have taken that closeness for granted. When I am here, I remember what I love about being here. No matter what day, no matter what hour, New York never sleeps. The lights, the moving banners across Times Square, the curbside venders, the pretzel stands …I love all of it. As the taxi cabs, the double-decker buses and the swift moving pedestrians speed past me, I feel alive among it all.
The show, as its name suggests, was spectacular. The Rockettes were talented and supremely entertaining. The show in its totality was bright, energetic and chock full of dancing-in-your-seat fun. The snack prices, just like the show, were spectacular, too – Was the $6.00 bottle of diet soda filled with magic or something?! When the show concluded, we left the theater and enjoyed the weather, and the lights, and everything else in between. Thank you, Brian, for the gift and for the experience. We really lucked out with the weather! Below are some highlights from our New York adventure.
