It’s 93 degrees outside, and I’m literally melting, but there’s one place where there’s a guaranteed chill, Christmas and City in Little Italy, New York City. A pretty unassuming building front in the heart of a district known as Little Italy, except for the fact it’s painted red and has huge fir swags covering it. There are hundreds and thousands of decorations dedicated to Christmas. It’s probably easier if I share with you pictures of some of the decorations on sale here to give you an idea of the scope of ornaments on offer.
Even the 9/11 Memorial has been hand blown in glass.
The Rockettes from Radio City Music Hall.
And quite a few Irish decorations.
Cartoon characters and children’s TV favourites.
A section dedicated to The Wizard of Oz.
A section of Mermen and Mermaids.
And the more traditional Christmas scene.
Christmas and City is open 365 days a year.
122 Mulberry Street, New York, NY 10013
