the giant snowflake star on 57th and fifth

Christmas-Star/Snowflake-57th-Street-and-5thAvenue-Manhattan



























who doesn't love this giant snowflake/star that hangs suspended over the intersection of 57th street and 5th avenue in manhattan? I always thought of it as strictly a snowflake but if you take blurry night photos like me, it does appear to have a star like quality to it.

Swarovski puts that flake/star up every holiday season

It really is beautiful! (It's also meant to benefit UNICEF—if you donate $500, they'll engrave one of the crystals with the name of your choice and send you a replica.)
