Believe in the magic...

So it's March, it's still cold and I'm still blogging about my week in New York!... Think it will be next Christmas before I finish!
Two things that are quentessentialy Christmas in New York are Believe and the Ballet otherwise known as Macy's and The Nutcracker.
Macy's is the department store that inspired the magic of Miracle on 34th Street and holiday slogan is all around the "Believe" message... It comes alive at Christmas and with its old wooden escalators you could be transported back to an age gone bye. With Santa post daily its a treat for children young and old.
On this visit a huge amount if the store was under hoarding with a huge 50million $ refurbishment programme underway.. It definitely felt that 'Mr Selfridge' was inspiring the new spaces opening... Exciting times for Macy's as outside the holiday season the store is tired and jaded.
After an afternoon shopping I headed over to the Lincoln centre on the upper west side to spend an evening watching the New York ballets version of The Nutcracker, my favourite seasonal ballet... The scenery was fun and the huge ever growing Christmas trees was a vision of wonder for the smaller audience...
A lovely evening in New York finished by a walk along the park to the hotel.
