I could not think of a more fun and festive way to close the year than with a walking tour of the amazing neighborhood Christmas Lights in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn! If you didn’t make it there this holiday season, put it on your list of things not to miss for 2023! Happy New Year, Dear Readers!
This is one of my favorite photos taken during an August visit to the New York Botanical Garden shortly after it reopened post-lockdown. 2020 was a hard year, but I like to think that it made me a stronger, more resourceful, more appreciative and more compassionate individual. I thank you for your readership and support of the blog this year, and I hope that you have at least a few precious memories of 2020 as we welcome and look forward to 2021, where things can only get better. Cheers!
The New Year’s Eve tile above is part of Times Square Times: 35 Times, a public artwork commissioned from Ceramic sculptor Toby Buonagurio by the MTA Arts for Transit. It is permanently installed in illuminated presentation windows embedded in the glass block passageway walls throughout the Times Square – 42nd Street Subway Station. The artworks are owned by the MTA New York City Transit. However you choose to celebrate this evening, have fun , be safe and stay cozy warm!
Happy New Year and All The Best for 2019!
