This will be my last post of the year. The best wishes to my friends, colleagues, fellow snowboarders and everyone else who stumbles upon my writings.
This is the second year I’ve spent Christmas across the river in Manhattan. If you did not believe that New York’s “City That Never Sleeps” nickname is well-deserved, then you should take a trip to New York late on Christmas to be convinced. Even 11:00 in the evening in New York City can seem just like any other night – well, at least on Fifth Avenue. People shop, tourists scramble to to pose in front of the Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center, men peddle their “Fendee” and “Louis Veeeton” bags on the streets – ironically, sometimes right in front of the very shops that sell the real thing.
Here are a few shots around Fifth Avenue as midnight approached and, yet another, Christmas was about to come to an end.
The very best to you and your family and a Happy New Year.
