Hi all, I'm on the last day of our trip & have so far had a 5 day fruitless search for some NYC related Christmas baubles.

Can any of you point me in the right direction?

I reluctantly ventured into Times Square but, as expected, they only had poor quality, overpriced offerings.

Hope you can help. Thanks in advance.

1. Re: Baubles!?

I actually saw some in the gift shop of the American Museum of Natural History a few days ago. (Main gift shop, upper level). They are selling ornaments on a few different trees, each with a theme, and one tree had a NYC theme. Also a good place to pick up an apatosaurus ornament, if you're in the market... :)

Do you mean ornaments? Try the holiday markets - Bryant Park, Grand Central, Columbus Circle, Union Square, etc.

Is a "bauble" the same as an "ornament?

You can get some at the city government's store in the Municipal Building at Chambers Street and Centre Street. Here's their list of available ornaments:


and here's their location (near City Hall)
