New York in December

12.13.05

Some random observations:

  • New Yorkers complain about the cold even more than Montrealers do, or at least it seems that way.
  • Fifth Avenue is pretty with all the lights.
  • Stuck for a gift idea? No problem. There’s a street vendor at 73rd and Broadway selling Christmas sweaters for $2.
  • Lots of tall buildings arranged perpendicularly in a grid create massive wind tunnels. Ugh.
  • Most of the subway station platforms aren’t heated. The subway trains are, though.
  • Winter, spring, summer or fall… it’s just as impossible to get a cab from downtown Manhattan to the airport at rush hour.

For your viewing pleasure, here’s a random snapshot of Rockefeller Center all decorated for the holidays:
