When I think of Christmas in a big city, New York is the first that comes to mind. Movies like A Miracle On 34th Street have helped to give New York City a very special Christmastime mystique. And if you've ever been to New York during the holidays you know first hand how magical it can be. Rockefeller Center, Fifth Avenue, Times Square & Central Park are all decked out, and there is something wonderful that happens when falling snow glistens under the twinkling city lights.
In addition to the traditional Christmas movies that are set in New York there are also a good number of New York inspired Christmas songs. For this list I've brought together ten lesser-known tracks. So if you're lucky enough to live in New York, put this on your iPod and take a walk to enjoy the sights. If not, maybe this playlist will help transport you there, just for a little while.
