New York City in Images, Her Fav 8

The ringing in of a new year initially brings mother nature’s more fickle and moody side to the surface, yet even with cold temps and possible snow and rain, it’s hard to deny the beauty of New York City in January.

The city is a bit sleeper; the pace, a gear slower; and the mood, reflective. Best of all for travelers, there are deals to be had in restaurants and hotels all over town.

Here are shots taken January 1 – 8 in the Big Apple.
