Greenwich Avenue

THING 58 - Drive down Greenwich Avenue when it is lit up

There are few things I remember more vividly about Greenwich than the Greenwich Avenue lit up through the holidays.  It's a great time of the year to take a drive down the avenue.  I'm not very elegant with my words, so I'll leave the similes to the poets.Per the Greenwich Time, it looks like we are actually very lucky to have a lit up avenue this year.  For those of you in the generous spirit, this might be a worthy cause.

THING 68 - Greenwich Avenue The Day Before Christmas

The good news is you have tons of time to shop.  Seriously, why would anyone want to go shopping for more than say 60 minutes?  Ok, you have to buy stuff for the whole family, so allot two hours.  The bad news is that you have to get off your tails and buy your stuff in person, sorry Amazon.  Yes, you have to turn this computer off, leave me, and venture out into the big bad world.  Good luck and god speed.

Holiday Sales on Greenwich Avenue

For those of you who have some extra cash to spare, Meg Nolan van Reesema wrote a great article on Patch.com about sales on Greenwich Avenue.Here's a little blurb from her article:"I know, it's a holiday saying, but in the world of Greenwich Avenue, right now, is indeed one of the most wonderful times of the year: sale time.Every year, as soon as the holiday mad-dash is over and people have spent top dollar for their gifts, just about everything goes on sale. (Don't even get me started on what that does to the value of your returns.) Gone are the storefront's twinkling lights and nutcracker displays and in its place are glaring, mostly red and white, sale signs. Sometimes I'm hard pressed to say which I prefer. Despite the loss of holiday cheer, the mostly, Ave-wide sales do make January a little less brutal."for the rest please go here.
