Nutcracker, Midtown Sixth Avenue

Theme: Holiday Sights. Notes by Mark Lentz.

These Nutcrackers are another long-standing Sixth Avenue Corporate Row* tradition.

The yellow ribbon was to keep people away from the base of the building, where snow from yesterday's blizzard was falling off the sides.

*We define Corporate Row as the stretch of skyscrapers from 44th through the mid-50s, on the west side, created by urban renewal in the 1960's and 70's.
