Us New Yorkers are picking live fir trees, wreaths and berries for our apartments. Drinking hot chocolate with whipped cream, and throwing on our winter coats and boots we take out from storage. Here are some random pics of the past couple of weekends! ENJOY!

The TCS New York City Marathon happens the first week in November every year. This week in NYC has been a tough one, with the shock of the terror attack on the west side bike path on Halloween. But us New Yorkers are strong and resilient. Today, we all came out together to celebrate our wonderful and unique melting pot of a city with the marathon. All nations, races, beliefs and ages come together showing unity….this is why this city is great! Protected by New York’s finest (NYPD) we all stood in the drizzle to support and cheer on more than 50 thousand runners with over 125 countries running. Great atmosphere today! #NYSTRONG

Governors Island: is a 172-acre island in New York Harbor, approximately 800 yards from the southern tip of Manhattan Island and separated from Brooklyn by Buttermilk Channel, approximately 400 yards. For most of its history, Governors Island was a full-service military base for the US Army, then for the Coast Guard. You can get to it by a quick $2 Ferry Trip from The Battery! You can walk around the island or there are bikes to ride! During the FALL months, they have a Pumpkin Patch, which is fun for kids and adults. For more about Governors Island, click here.
