Tree Lighting, Rockefeller Center
It was a rainy evening with threatening storm clouds building in the distance. Part of me wanted to call it a night, and just watch from the comfort of my couch. Yet after the flood of retail commercialism, and several weeks of Black Friday sales being broadcast day and night, I needed a bit of holiday cheer. Nothing like standing outside for 5 hours in a crowd of 500,000 New Yorkers to lift your spirits! I brought my little Flip Video to capture the moment.
I also used the iPhone 4 with the Audioboo app to record Josh Groban singing the Christmas Song. Considering the crowd noise, I think it did a pretty nice job.
And now I can honestly say, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in New York.
