It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… and more importantly, it’s starting to feel like it. While my time in New York City was far too brief, I did manage to cram a lot in, including a snowy stroll to Rockefeller Center to see the tree, festive nights out to the titillating Duane Park in Manhattan and to hotspots Shrine and Red Rooster in Harlem. I love the theme that developed in this week’s photos — the city after dark.
As crushed as I was to say what felt like a very abrupt goodbye to the big city, returning back upstate to Albany this weekend felt pretty damn good. It may not be as tall as the one on 49th street, but there’s nothing like coming home to the Christmas tree all lit up in the house I grew up in. The Glee holiday album on repeat, frantic holiday party planning and regular fireside sessions are all on the agenda as I look forward to sleeping in the same bed for more than two weeks straight. In other words, look for plenty of cocker-spaniel-in-a-Christmas-sweater portraits in next week’s edition.
For now, onto Photo of the Week… a Manhattan edition!
