I have lived in New York City my entire life and I have never seen anything like this. There is one block on the westside of Manhattan that is decorated with strands of lights that make you feel like you are in the middle of a storybook. It’s truly a beautiful sight.
I’m not sure what the celebration was all about, but whoever decorated that street certainly knew how to use tree tops, lamp posts, and electric poles to create a winter wonderland. Fifty-sixth street between eighth and ninth avenues is not to be missed.
