Sparkly Lights in Rockefeller Center

Rockefeller Center, NYC
Photo by myself at Rockefeller Center, around 50th Street and 5th Avenue.

I ventured to one of the most touristy areas the other night to get a glimpse of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. There were legions of people milling about taking pictures, ice skating and enjoying the evening.


It's the season for giving and hope. New Yorkers who wish to make a difference should consider The Fresh Air Fund.

I've always associated the group with summertime, when inner city kids are transported to camp, to connect with nature. Not so. It is always a good time to help children in need.

Families can also host children in their homes, so they can experience the suburbs or the country. There are also events promoting career awareness, like visiting different workplaces and classes regarding job skills.

By merely becoming aware of other possibilities and lifestyles, inner city children can take their first steps toward taking control of their future.

Hi Chimesey
How true. I can't imagine being a kid in the city. They grow up fast here.
