Christmas Village in NYC, 5th Avenue

Another great way to know what's going on in the city is signing up for "deal" sites that offer discounts to restaurants, events and more. Sometimes I think I subscribe to too many, but with so much going on in New York City, it's nice to know my options. Travelzoo had discounted tickets available to the Christmas Village exhibits, one of which was just around the corner from my job in midtown, so I figure, why not? The exhibit includes 21 winter/Christmas scenes that include music, animatronics, and lots of (faux) snow. They have a second location in Little Italy that I plan to visit next year as the scenes are different. Here is a description from their site:

The Mayor of Mouseville wanted to bring his family to New York City during the holiday season, so they could see how festively we celebrate Christmas here. He wrote to the Mayor of New York, who asked Santa himself to be Honorary Mayor and show the Mouse Family through The City, as Santa knows and loves it well. Santa meets the family at Grand Santa Station (NY renamed the train terminal for the occasion), and he is dressed in his red business suit and tie, without his cap.

From there, he will show them the sights of NY, including Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, Times Square, Bryant Park, the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, Wall Street, Freedom Towers, and the Statue of Liberty. 

It's almost sickening how cute that sounds.

Now onto the pictures!

[I really love squirrels]

[this was just creepy. reminded me more of a troll than an elf]

[Santa must be on call. But why is he bathing with clothes on?]

Merry Christmas!
