Upper West Side, Broadway Between 105th and 104th Streets

Unexpectedly being here for Christmas, I had to scramble to find a photograph for tonight. I backtracked a block to find a seasonally appropriate shot for Christmas Eve.

I wonder how nonobservers of Christmas view the annual forest of evergreens that lines our streets. Pleasant or annoying? Something else?

See map.

I like them, especially the ones that smell piney, but I always feel bad that beautiful trees are being cut down (even though I know many are farmed) for a few fleeting moments of - what - I don't know what to call it.

I love it -- I love all the green, especially since the deciduous street trees are bare, and of course the smell. It's not Channukah without them!
