Thanx Roz but I do not actually live in NYC, I live a 2 hour drive in Pennsylvania and get there a few times a month for the blog. I am lucky to be so close and can't imagine moving if it is too far a drive from NYC! This is a great display for a great cause, everyone should check it out if in the city for the holidays!!
