In honor of this holiday season I have to tell you about the best NYC Santa Claus. A friend told me about the best Santa in NYC and after living here for so long and never hearing about him I had to see for myself. I went the night before because my yoga studio is right near ABC Carpet and Home ( 888 Broadway and 19th Street) and drilled the security guys about Santa. They told me he was the "Real Deal" with a real beard, belly and beautiful vintage suit who gives the children a unique lollipop when they are finished visiting with him. If you have never been to ABC Carpet it is beautifully decorated and has exquisite gifts ( They can be on the pricier side but they are one of a kind). Security told me the best time to arrive would be 2 p.m. when the line would not be as long and to bring my own camera because you are your own photographer so there is no charge to sit on Santas lap. The setting was absolutely stunning and when i arrived the next day I was convinced and in awe of Santa. I was tempted to sit on his lap and tell him what I wanted for Christmas but didn't want to freak him out :) So I watched as the children made their way to him- it was so sweet. Unfortunately he is only at ABC carpet on weekends and this will be his last but if you live in NY or are here for the holiday season next year this is a must see!!! ABC Carpet has the Best Santa I've ever seen!!!! Happy Holidays everyone!!!!!
