What I Learned about Times Square During the Christmas Season

You don’t want to be there. See that crowd of people I’m coming up on? Once you hit that wall of people you can only inch along, it was absolutely maddening. I took these heading to our choir performance at the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which felt timeless and serene and other-worldly. I loved it in there.

Once you turn onto a side street it’s more sane. This is 46th, the church is just beyond Rosie O’Grady’s. I love the cacophony of signs.

  1. Hey Stacy,
    Crowds can be horrendous. But sounds like getting through all that to sing was worth it! Everything seems so vibrant there in NYC; being out at night must be exciting.

    I wanted to pass along this link from Dr. Jeff Masters’ blog about a potential hurricane hitting NYC. NOT that it will happen, but since you have stated you have preps, thought you’d find it interesting.

  2. I forget what zone I’m in. It’s not the worst one, but it’s not good either. I’m pretty close to the water.
