More New York Christmas

Photo dump from my recent trip to New York City. Times Square was crazy as always.

People were shopping for Christmas trees. Many of the trees were tiny little things for tiny little apartments. These were about 3 feet tall.

The weather was absolutely perfect. This is the outdoor eating area next to the Union Square Christmas market. We stopped for a bite and took in the atmosphere.

This man was walking six dogs. I asked him if I could take a photo and he said it was fine, as long as I didn’t try and talk to the dogs. There was a cute corgi in the group, but he/she hid under the bench. Note the extreme stink-eye coming from the little dog with the muzzle. Yikes!

This is the Met Breuer museum, where I saw the Edvard Munch exhibit: Between the Clock and the Bed. Most people know Munch for a version of this:

But my friends and I were very moved by his other work, which, I must add, was wonderfully curated.

This is a self-portrait of the artist in Hell. There were several self-portraits in this show, which I appreciated for their  honesty. I know that Munch has been endlessly described as a “dark” and “tortured,” but look at this:  “Starry Night 1.”

I will end on a superficial note. This is  “soca,” a chickpea flour pancake adorned with fresh sage leaves and parmesan cheese. It is a specialty of southern France – Nice to be specific, and it is served at one of our new favorite restaurants in Hell’s Kitchen.

I wish all of my readers a fun and relaxing holiday. I’ll be back at it in January.
