Holiday Travels

Rockefeller Center, NYC
We spent the past five days over the holiday traveling around three contiguous states: New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

I will not bore you the details. Here are several pictures from the journey:
Margate, New Jersey
Home damaged by Sandy being raised above future flood levels (hopefully!).
New flood maps and new regulations will require homes to be raised in many towns
in New York and New Jersey devastated by Sandy. 
Longwood Gardens, PA
Pierre du Pont began creating the garden estate after purchasing a local farm and arboretum in 1906.
Today over 1,000 acres of outdoor and indoor gardens offer flowers,
trees and decorated exhibits throughout the year.
This holiday table and decor is in a building
originally used by Pierre du Pont and his wife when entertaining.   
Manhattan, New York City
Pollution-free transportation
The new tower under construction replacing the Twin Towers in lower Manhattan.
