Fierce Christmas

sandra lee christmas tree 2012OK, people, let's just call this now: New York's First Lady-friend has won over-the-top Christmas. The rest of us are playing for second place. Deploy your garland and tinsel accordingly. (Yes, that appears to be a silver tiger lounging beneath the tree at the Lee/Cuomo house. Fierce. Update: Here's more about the $4,000something silver-plated tiger.) [@SandraLee] [NY Observer]

Love the tiger but that tree is the stuff of nightmares.

Well, they do say you can't buy taste.

Hopefully these projects will all be built. It's crazy how anti-development and NIMBYist some people are around here, and then they wonder why so many people leave. It's fine if they build a house or move in, but then they want to close the door to everyone else.
