Christmas in the Big Apple is in a league of its own. It's over the top. You can feel the contagious excitement in the air. I'm in the midst of it all as I write this - swept up in the irresistible sights, sounds and smells of the holiday season. Dancing, singing and subway-riding Santas, concerts, extravagant holiday windows, lavish decorations, street corner carolers and enough holiday bling to satisfy Mariah Carey.

Broadway never ceases to amaze and dazzle me. You can feel the electricity and excitement in Times Square, the best people-watching spot on earth. There's nothing like a good old fashioned Broadway musical to get your adrenaline pumping. Fabulous costumes, great choreography, and terrific sets are set against a backdrop of historic theaters.
