Photo Essays: Christmas on the Upper East Side

One thing I love about the Upper East Side? Store owners and residents really get into decorating for the season.

I had a great (albeit chilly) time walking around this past weekend and taking in all the festive decorations, trying to stay warm with hot chocolate from the adorable cocoa cart outside The Mark Hotel. Read on to see a few more pictures:
