I keep trying to become a jaded New Yorker but it’s not working. Neither temps in the 20’s, nor rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor a borderline sinus infection can keep me from celebrating a holiday visit to the city. Especially this holiday. Years ago we celebrated a few Thanksgivings at The New York Palace and this year we revived that tradition. Taylor, Daniel and Angie and family bunked there this weekend so we could re-create a midtown Thanksgiving dinner there after viewing the parade from our little spot at Columbus Circle. The absolute best of two worlds.
We all took a break after the parade and then reconvened for dinner at The Palace. It is looking very regal indeed after a recent renovation. Such a special way to celebrate Thanksgiving!
The CE and I headed back to Midtown for dinner with our boys last night and enjoyed looking at the Fifth Avenue decorations once the Black Friday crowds dispersed.
Bergdorf Goodman’s holiday windows are always a delight. This year’s theme is “Inspired” and dedicated to The Arts. We were truly awe-inspired when we saw the “Authors” window with needlepoint portraits of Herman Melville, Emily Dickinson and others.
It has been a most perfect Thanksgiving weekend. Well, except for missing those critters (and that reported 80-degree weather) back in California. Don’t get to feeling too sorry for them, though – looks like they are not suffering in the least:
