It’s safe to say our family enjoyed every minute of the holidays. We spent the special time with our family members and enjoyed the sights of the city. There is never a shortage of fun holiday activities in New York City and once again we feel so lucky to live in the greatest city in the world. We attended tree lightings, made gingerbread houses and enjoyed some outdoor ice skating, We also saw some live classic holiday performances like The Nutcracker & Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
