There’s something quietly beautiful about a rainy, warm day the week before Christmas.

I find myself naturally drawn to the reds and greens - but in a more reserved and dampened down way. I snapped these moments while taking a stroll through Greenpoint - one of my favorite New York neighborhoods.

After growing up in the suburbs, over the past few years I’ve really taken to looking for the magic in city neighborhoods during the holidays. The last of the foliage is dwindling and there’s an almost comical sense of life infused into street corners.

What’s your favorite city neighborhood during the holidays?
