The city finally gave the King some respect for the holidays and put up a billboard to let people know he is out there representing. Holla !!...as my yellow cab brother drives by !!
I have performed every one of these dances at one time or another in my life , especially my favorite move which is the walking in place Frankenstein shuffle by the kid in the green shirt in the back.....they all work well though at any festive party.
No Christmas tree is complete without a King Of New York Hacks ornament.
Blurry tree shot , but I kinda dig the way it came out.
Flushing, Chinatown in Queens.
Flushing Cabstand, Main St and Roosevelt Queens. Usually where I start my night.
The infamous 86 st in Brooklyn, only thing missing is John Travolta walking down the street carrying paint cans and eating a double stacked slice of pizza Saturday Night Fever style. Fuhgeddaboudit !!!!
Astoria, Queens. Where I spent my early childhood and some of my family still remains. Great place.
THE Snowflake 57 st and 5th Ave.
And there is certainly something great about the 27-foot Big Snowflake. To learn who sponsors it, when it is hung and lit, visit the Unicef Snowflake site.
We've learned that it has been there for the past 17 seasons and was designed by Douglas Leigh ("the man who brought animated billboards to Times Square and immortalized Time Square with its famous Camel billboard with its smoking ring" -- signindustry.com).
The further away you get , the better it looks. Brilliant.
This video captures Christmas scenery in New York in 2008 including world famous Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, UNICEF Snowflake, holiday windows and etc. Christmas in NY is the best in the universe even in tough economy time! Compliments of my man CubeNewYork. Well done !!
Tree on 58th street which is huge and a startling blue. I don't know if its a hotel or luxury condos, but it is breathtaking.
No, even at Christmas we will never forget.
This is all I can afford from the Yankees now.
God Bless America, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our brothers and sisters overseas, we hope to see you soon !!
Hell yeah, even Darth Vader gets into the spirit now !!!!
I just signed this NY Yankee snowman to be on my tree for 8 years $180 million dollars..I hope he's not on steroids.
Don't forget St. Patricks day is just around the corner !!! A good reminder at Christmas !!!!
The best Christmas explanation I ever heard was the one Linus gave to Charlie Brown...
I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people,and on earth peace, good will toward men, and women of course.
NYC prepping the streets for the holidays !!
Even Mickey Mouse couldn't stay away from the sights and sounds of NYC !!!
This is a nice Christmas deer, However......
My niece's Christmas deer which she taped to the wall is far more superior !!!
The GE Building is an Art Deco skyscraper that forms the centerpiece of the Rockefeller Center in Midtown Manhattan. Known as the RCA Building until 1988, it is famous for housing the headquarters of the television network NBC. At 850 feet (259 m) tall, the 70-story building is the 9th tallest building in New York City and the 32nd tallest in the United States. The building is sometimes referred to as 30 Rock, a reference to its address at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
One squeegee guy and a Zamboni Machine to clean the ice ?? The economy is bad !!

The Gold dude in the fountain?? This is who he is !!!
In Greek mythology, Prometheus (Ancient Greek: Προμηθεύς, "forethought") is a Titan known for his wily intelligence, who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to mortals for their use. Zeus then punished him for his crime by having him bound to a rock while an eagle ate his liver every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day. His myth has been treated by a number of ancient sources, in which Prometheus is credited with (or blamed for) playing a pivotal role in the early history of humankind. There is an inscription on the wall behind him which reads "Prometheus, teacher in every art, brought the fire that hath proved to mortals a means to mighty ends." Rock on Prometheus, thanks for the fire !!
and as Prometheus watches , a lady in the Red Vest does The Rockefeller "Cha Cha" !!!
Rock on Red Vest lady !!!

The Olympic Station Building across from St Patricks Cathedral.
Staten Island Ferry Tree ...and no those people aren't dead, just a frequent sight on my way home after driving Friday nights and everyone coming home from partying around 4:30 AM. They just crash out on the floor waiting for the ferry to arrive. Classic. I have more shots like these for a later post.
The Herald Square Trees, love the special lights that simulates snow coming down !!
SAKS 5th Avenue Windows
I believe they are all based on a book called "Snowflake City"....
I like the sign "curb your penguin". Don't think I've ever seen penguin shit.
They were O.K. looking , but for SAKS , I thought it was ...."meh".
Santa yelling Yippee !! The Chrysler Building replica, my favorite building in the city.

It wouldn't be Christmas without seeing Charlie Brown take care of his own tree with some help from all his friends.
The King is always watching , just like Santa Claus.
So in closing I hope I brought you good tidings of great joy, to all people who read this post,and on earth peace, good will toward men, and women...and penguins. I may not be Linus , but I am THE KING OF NEW YORK HACKS ! Be safe everyone and have a great holiday. Peace out peepers.
