Christmas time in New York City is magical. The Rockefeller Christmas tree, all the store decorations. The entire city feels alive. There is nothing like Christmas time in New York City. If you haven’t experienced it, it is a must add to your bucket list.
Seeing the images from yesterday’s blizzard in the Northeast reminded me of the blizzard I got caught in NYC last year. I took a day trip into the city to check out the Rockefeller Christmas Tree. I had always dreamed of seeing that tree so I went a few days before Christmas. I had saw the weather reports of the impending storm but with the time table the forecasters gave I thought I had enough time to take the Bolt Bus back to Boston at night before the snow got too heavy.
Going to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been a lifetime dream of mine. I would spend every Thanksgiving morning watching the parade on TV, secretly wishing I was there to witness it first hand. And then one day I went and it was all worth the wait. Bucket list item check!
For a travel photographer like myself, spending a weekend in New York City is a dream come true. Hell, for any type of photographer for that matter. New York City has a plethora of amazing locales to photograph. And it never hurts that the city never sleeps; there is always something going on.
