Gals, anyone wearing thick belted coats while heading out for thanksgiving dinner. It is quite popular around my area for women, and almost everyone heading out for dinner on thanksgiving night wears one.

Adi, those pictures are great. Every year we tried to figure out how to see the parade, my Dad loved them. He's been gone a year, so we will watch it together from below and above.

My folks used to come up every year. These past two it's just DH and me so comfy around the house jeans and a clean long sleeved tee.

Its quite simple for a small group from upstate NY actually if you are willing to pay a price. Take the 6:00 AM bus from your nearest greyhound stop to NYC, get down and walk out of the PA terminal's east exit (Towards 8th ave) following the directions posted. Walk down a couple blocks along 40th street, and you will reach 6th avenue where the parade will pass through. The parade reaches this area around 10:30 AM.

My extended family left central NJ, took the 7:53 AM suburban transit bus, reached NYC at 8:45 AM, and selected a good spot to stand and see the parade. We paid $180 for 10 people to and fro which is quite expensive, but it is worth the cost. All of us had a blast in the city. After the parade passed, we ate lunch at a Turkish restaurant, then went to see the downtown attractions, and took a stroll along the west side to capture this glorious sunset. Hope you enjoyed my narration :

Strolling on the West side:

Wow, what a great story. The last time I was in the city was about six years ago to see Fifth Avenue and Rock Center for Christmas.

We do that almost every year (sometimes every 2 years). That's the opportunity of living in a transit friendly NYC suburb. I can go anywhere in the city without relying entirely on my car .

shorts, sandles and a polo shirt. The knit shirt with a collar is as fancy as I get. Things are really very casual here on the coast of Florida. I am sure there are some places where you need to dress.....I don't go to those places. If I am clean and groomed and my clothes are clean and not torn or stained.....that is all the effort I make.

Something like this:

Burberry Brit 'Crombrooks' Wool Blend Trench Coat | Nordstrom

People in this part of the state wear them very often when they are going out for an occasion.
