Festive Lights at the New York Palace

New York Palace Hotel
Photo by myself of the New York Palace Hotel, on Madison Avenue and 50th Street.

Giant snowflakes and ornaments panned along the walls of the NY Palace Hotel. Inside the courtyard, caterers set up tables for a fancy event.

This historic building used to be the Helmsley Palace. The hotel's owner, Leona Helmsley, was notorious for her less than stellar personality. She eventually went to prison for tax evasion and left millions of dollars to her dog.


Miss B of 365 Days in Brooklyn, (formerly 365 Days in Islip) asked the other day how Rupert was, so here's a photo from Friday.

Chilling near the food bowl
Here he is, patiently waiting for Mark to finish up some work, so he can get out and play.

Rupert is as perky as usual and adjusting well to the cooler weather. Boston terriers typically prefer moderate weather, so our extreme temperatures have been a challenge.

I will have to take a photo of his winter gear, which is Scandinavian!

Fans of teen TV may also recognize the hotel as the home of Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl.

It's good to see Rupert again. He's a sweetie.

Scandinavian winter gear? Sounds interesting. Swedish perhaps?

You're really gonna have to post a pic of Rupert in the Scandinavian gear.

And yes, Boston terriers are very picky about their weather conditions!

I have friends that have 3 Boston terriers and when the weather's acting up the whole house is chaos!
