I began seeing the Santas this morning as they were headed toward their starting places for this year's NYC Santacon
. I saw them on most streets of the Village before 10 a.m.. As I was heading uptown around noon to visit The Frick Collection
, I really didn't think the Santas would come to the Upper East Side.
Wrong. I first saw the Santas on the uptown 6 train
, and then I was surprised to see them get off at 68th Street. Just as I was about to walk into the Frick, the Santas received their command to converge at Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. I was happily caught up in a Santa wave.

|Santas would look good in a red car.|
|Many Santas needed to use the facilities.|
|Some Santas were very gendered.|
|Santas seemed to enjoy the park ambience.|
|Some Santas are hard to see unless you click on the picture to make it bigger.|
|Here are two Santas chillin' at the Whitney Museum. Notice the women in black.|

I loved this photo montage! I may have to use one (with your permission and of course w/credit to you) at my place. If this doesn't put you in the mood, I don't know what would.ReplyDelete
