An Afternoon Celebrating the Christmas Season

Cristina Soriano

The West Village celebrates Christmas like no other neighborhood in the city. Every red brick townhouse is adorned with a pine wreath and their staircases wrapped with evergreen garlands, pines and pepper berries.  I love to walk around the cobblestone streets and dream about the happenings inside the town homes – mothers and daughters making gingerbread cookies, couples sharing glasses of spiced cider and readers bundled up by a crackling fire.

One of my favorite doors in the West Village. I love the simplicity of the evergreen garlands.

Although snow is absent in the city, the West Village continues to celebrate the season with intense fervor.

I started walking along the Highline Park and ducked into the Chelsea Market for a delicious cup of hot chocolate. I love the Christmas lights adorning the archways. 

The juxtaposition of the corrugated tin roofs, industrial piping and the romantic glow of the lights is quite alluring!

My stroll took me to the Union Square holiday market where I enjoyed a few cups of glüwein and some delicious homemade pretzels – truffle-cheddar and garlic-parsley!

The market was such a treat – a celebration of both the holiday season and small businesses. Vendors sold alpaca hats, handmade jewelry, olive wood trays, Nutella filled crepes and more!

I love these dried flower and evergreen wreaths. The vibrant colors remind me of the spring.
