Listeners know that I (and MANY Iowans) LOVE to travel and I do love New York City. Of course, I'll head for Times Square to enjoy it for the chaos, colorfulness, and the bizarre sites too!
I won't be headed to New York City for THIS Christmas, but here's a tip for those who do:
If you plan to visit the Big Apple during the holiday season, you’ll be able to once again visit a legendary store.
The new FAO Schwarz has set up shop at New York City's Rockefeller Center and will open today. It's bringing back its giant clock tower and dance piano made famous by the movie “Big."
There is a baby doll adoption center, in store magic shows, remote control car workshops and products that can't be found online.
FAO Schwarz closed its Fifth Avenue flagship store three years ago after company issues and rising rents. It had been a staple of New York for 150 years.
The most luxurious item on sale could be a child-size, drivable Mercedes Benz encrusted with 44,000 Swarovski crystals. Base price: $25,000.
A visit to that store and Macy's would make any Christmas traveler to NYC happy. I also recommend the M&M's Store as well. Happy holidays!
