Winter Vacation, Part 4

The windows were at a store called Anthropology or something like that, as if you would dig up old clothes. Susan liked the old-fashioned paper chains made from book pages (good recycling!) and mixed in with old postcards.

Somehow this little bit of landscaping must have seemed welcoming to New Yorkers starved for anything that wasn't concrete. Unfortunately it reminded me of the battle between Mr. Gopher and Bill Murray in the movie "Caddyshack" and Susan said it reminded her of frost heaves.

In case you don't make it to the lighting of the big Tree in Rockefeller Center here's a Before picture. All I have to say is that it is in there somewhere and it is a LOT smaller in real life than it seems in pictures. Or maybe it's that the buildings around it are so big?

Rockefeller Center is a nice place to be a tourist -- lots of flags, skaters, and tourists taking pictures of tourists.

Tomorrow, a final very special post about our trip to New York City and then it's time to head back to my clay.
