Meet Me in Manhattan: Day 2

Day Two: We rode the Subway Uptown to Columbus Circle, walked through Central Park and down 5th Avenue, seeing Trump Tower, several churches, Rockefeller Center, and Times Square. That evening we walked the Brooklyn Bridge.

I loved seeing the Christmas decorations, lights, and window displays.

Cartier Jewelers.

St. Patrick’s and the Atlas at Rockefeller Center.

Lights at the FOX Broadcasting Studios.

A Trio of Colorful Holiday Windows at Bergdorf Goodman!

Christmas Ornaments for sale at Trump Tower. I couldn’t decide between the helicopter and the golf clubs!

Only 5 days until New Years Eve and Times Square as crowded as ever!

Ice Skating in Central Park.

The Plaza Hotel as seen from Central Park – this shot makes me think of Home Alone 2: Lost in New York City.

I always wanted to walk the Brooklyn Bridge. In the end, it was a disappointment. I dunno. Was it the crowds? Or the cold?

Would you like to visit NYC in the Christmas Season?

For the record, I would highly recommend another day (or two) for a food tour and to explore museums and/or other neighborhoods. This was my third trip to New York City mostly to visit the 9/11 Memorials. It served as the “appetizer course” to our big trip. Up next: The “soup and salad course” – aka The Cruise.

  1. Re: Brooklyn Bridge being a disappointment; I think it’s because it was after dark. I walked it in autumn sunshine and it was beautiful. A warm breeze, the blue water, tug boats at work, the Statue of Liberty, the whole island, the other people too, it had a festive feeling…i love your foto blogs!


  2. Great Photos – a wonderful place – my favourite city.
    I agree with carol – the city lights are lovely but the bridge is better in day time.
