Joan, I watched it on TV. Between the tree lighting and Mr. Obama in town, the entire Midtown Manhattan area was in gridlock!

Gordon... sometimes we New Yorkers suffers in traffic when Mr. Obama come into town. We try to avoid the neighborhood he plans to visit since the securities closed down those city streets and avenues and the surrounding areas.

Every year, I follow NBC about the story how the tree came about. I think it's incredible. Someday, we may just do that with the family.
