A Forest Room

You know what is awesome?  Whatever your religiosity, whatever you think of contemporary Christmas celebrations, you have to love the Christmas tree stands that sprout up all over New York City (and other cities?) after Thanksgiving. Just walking down the sidewalk you get immersed in the smell of pine trees. And the trees become a tiny forest enclave–this stand in the West Village has a small shelter for the tree-seller (complete with couch), bike storage, and a small private room in the form of a nearby parked van. Strings of lightbulbs above provide the feeling of a roof and stands of trees stand in for walls. I love outdoor rooms of all kinds, but these are downright magical.
