A Walk Around NYC at Christmastime

Cabot visited New York City at Christmastime.
Cabot decided to join thousands of other tourists and walk down Fifth Avenue looking at the Christmas decorations.

He said hello to the lions in front of the Public Library but they didn't say hello back.

Look at all the people!

Cabot went to Grand Central Station, now beautifully restored. (That's the Chrysler Building in the background).

Did you know there were rats on the entrance of the Graybar Building & Grand Central on Lexington Avenue? They are running up ships ropes and the cone shape things were traditionally put on the ropes to block them. We were never able to find out why there are rats on that entrance!

We walked down Fifth Avenue to see the famous tree at Rockefeller Center.

There was a huge line of tourists waiting to skate at the skating rink. Silly tourists--there is free skating behind the Public Library in Bryant Park! Rockefeller Center is expensive!

Across from Rockefeller Center is St Patrick's Cathedral.

All the fancy stores were beautifully decorated. This is Cartiers.

All the women were getting their pictures taken in front of Tiffany's, and Cabot figured why not.

This is the Unicef Star of Peace at Fifth Avenue & 59th Street. It looks prettier at night lit up.

Cabot waves hello to the Plaza Hotel which isn't a hotel any more but condominiums. It's probably not called the Plaza Hotel any more either.


  1. Absolutely brilliant! Cabot sure does get around!

  2. Wonderful tour Cabot! Thanks for helping me remember the Big City!
