In A Very New York Christmas, award-winning designer and illustrator Michael Storrings captures the spirit of the holidays in New York in dozens of watercolors, which since 2003 have been turned into bestselling Christmas ornaments.The unique sights, sounds, and experiences of New York City at Christmastime have enthralled residents and visitors alike for decades, inspiring tributes to the city in words and images. From the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, to the lighting of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, to the New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square, New York offers a magical landscape that epitomizes the excitement of the holiday season in one of the world's greatest cities. A Very New York Christmas crisscrosses Manhattan and the four outer boroughs to bring us a Christmas for all New Yorkers--whether residents or just fans--including less well-known traditions, like the Boys Choir of Harlem, the Christmas lights in Brooklyn's Dyker Heights, and the Holiday Train show at The New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. With a delightful foreword from Cynthia Nixon (Miranda from Sex and the City), this jewel-like book combines festive quotations from literature and popular culture with Storrings's charming watercolors of forty cherished New York holiday scenes, making this a perfect gift and yuletide keepsake. This edition includes a four-page full-color insert of removable ornaments.
