Weekend before Christmas, my wife and I took the kids in to Manhattan to see Santa at Macy's, and the Rockefeller Center tree. I know, we're idiots, but we had planned to go the prior weekend and got scared away by the thought that too many people would be rushing in to town to beat the transit strike.

Anyway, after a day of sheer bedlam fighting high-density crowds, we decided to head downtown and catch dinner at a restaurant at the South Street Seaport (OK, Pizzaria Uno; you go with the familiar and dependable chain when you have kids). It was like a different city; the Seaport is beautiful that time of year, lights strung everywhere, broad stone boulevards to wander with nearly nobody around. There place has nice shops, too (leaving aisde the smell of fish). I wound up wondering why we went to midtown at all - but also, wondering whether the Seaport was different before.
