New York City Feelings

I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York's skyline

The lights are up around all the major buildings here in New York, in celebration of the holidays.

I took a walk Tuesday night to Grand Central, one of my favorite buildings. Small booths were up for holiday shopping.

What many people don't know is that there is a market hall inside that's open all year round. Very similar to the food area at Harrod's in London, Grand Central Market sells specialty foods. There is always a buzz here.

At times you can get good deals - two beautiful tuna steaks for the price of one, anyone? I was sorely tempted by the huge array of cheeses at Murray's. After much browsing, I left with a half dozen decorated cupcakes for Mark's sweet tooth, from Zaro's.

For those with a little time to kill before the next train to upstate New York or Connecticut, it's the perfect place to purchase a last-minute gift.
