new-years-eve-photo-by-countdown-entertainment-llc[box][quote]Уже облетела листва и лишь кое-где все еще радуют глаз солнечно-желтые кроны особо упрямых кленов, пронзительно голубое небо и цветущие розы, немного влажный и все еще теплый воздух и ни снежинки на улицах, но полная победа белоснежного царства Снежной королевы в великолепных витринах магазинов на Пятой авеню. Так выглядит декабрь в Нью-Йорке. Добавьте к этому яркие огни и праздничное убранство улиц, музыку, рвущуюся наружу из всех без исключения магазинов и кафе, ярмарки подарков в Браянт парке и на Юнион сквер, суету желающих везде успеть горожан, плюс – все пребывающих туристов и звенящие колокольчики Армии спасения –получите полную картину нашей декабрьской реальности в Нью-Йорке.

Но, кроме этой веселой кутерьмы Нью-Йорк, конечно, готовит и особую праздничную программу развлечений и всевозможных мероприятий, некоторые из которых начались еще в ноябре, и мы о них уже упоминали.

Особо важным событием, кроме Нового года, Рождества и Хануки, можно назвать день, когда главная елка города зажигает свои огни – елку в Рокфеллер центре включат 2 декабря и продлится эта красота аж до 7 января. Серьезную конкуренцию Рокффелерской елке составит в этом году елка в Браянт парке которую осветят 30 000 LED лампочек.

Кстати, катки уже работают и выглядят особенно празднично и соблазнительно в эти декабрьские дни. Советуем хоть разок покататься на каждом из 3-х самых знаменитых: в Центральном парке, в Браянт парке, в Рокфеллер центре.

Обязательно посмотрите самые красивые в мире зимние витрины: BarneysBergdorf Goodman,Bloomingdale’sHenri BendelLord & TaylorMacy’sSaks Fifth Avenue and Tiffany & Co.


И еще один специальный совет. Совершите тур по Брклинским улицам и посмотрите на необыкновеные световые инсталяции созданые жителями возле своих бомов. Подробная информация:




Christmas Lights and Cannoli Tour.

The maxim “a little goes a long way” is not one Dyker Heights residents adhere to: Each year, various homeowners in the south Brooklyn ’hood trick out their abodes with thousands of twinkly lights, as well as oversize decorations (illuminated Nativity scenes, animatronic snowmen, giant nutcrackers).
Get a peek at the festive homes on this bus tour, which ends with a stop at Bella Luna Pizza for hot cocoa, and cannoli courtesy of Bensonhurst’s Villabate Alba.
