New York was snowy, then it was sunny and warm, then it was steamy with rain. And then it was freezing and clear.
I don’t care. Whatever the weather, it couldn’t be better. I’m here with my children.
The best sights? There were so many….
The gazillion gorgeous Christmas trees.
The foyer of the New York Public Library.
Watching the kids goof around.
Mathilda the cat at the Algonquin.
The Bethesda Fountain at Central Park, to the tune of Christmas Carols.
Hot chocolate while freezing at Bryant Park on Christmas night
The best tastes?
Hands-down, every single dish we tasted at my friend Andy Ricker’s restaurant, Pok Pok.
A Cuban sandwich in midtown.
Laura’s Christmas coffee cake
Empanadas in Queens.
A snowball from Empire Bakery.

The best feeling?
This one is easy. Christmas.
