Greenwich Village Christmas Decorations

Most of the NYC Christmas decorations that you see in public are done by companies or by the City.  However, one area with some simple and effective decorations was done by homeowners (or perhaps by the cooperatives) in Greenwich Village on 10th Street.

It’s the simplest stuff that is generally the best.  In the above cases, it’s just branches from evergreens (there’s a place selling Christmas trees just up a block and they lop off branches for this upon request – I know ‘cuz I saw them doing it).  There are some decorative touches, but that’s all.  I know some of them had lights intertwined in the branches, but I wasn’t there at night so I don’t know the effect.

I never noticed anyplace that’s decorated like the suburban houses where the homeowners go wild with Christmas stuff.  I have to admit that I’m happy about that.  Of course, it’s hard to compete with the Rockefeller Center tree and Macy’s windows.
