While mid-December is not my favorite time of year for a business trip, this is the second year in a row that work has taken me to the Big Apple around the holidays, and I have enjoyed seeing how festive it is at Christmastime in New York City.
I love how the Cartier building was decorated like a giant present.
The Harry Winston jewelry store down the street was not going to be out done!
Lots of people were taking pictures of the Saks Fifth Avenue windows.
I thought this one was interesting.
She opens her skirt to reveal the dancing gingerbread!
The Bergdorf Goodman windows had quite a different vibe.
Nothing says Happy Holidays! like giant grasshoppers!
I wish I’d thought to run by Rockefeller Center when it was still dark,
but the Christmas Tree still looked splendid–and smelled amazing!
While a business trip in mid-December might mean
having to write your Christmas cards on the train home, it’s not all bad!
Since I took most of these pictures on my runs, I’m linking up with the Weekly Wrap Link Up hosted by Holly and Tricia. I managed three runs, two strength workouts, one indoor cycling class, and a 2 mile walk to the train station in frigid temperatures (22F!) hauling my luggage.
Does it look like Christmastime in your city?
Can you believe I have another business trip this week?
