Christmas in Manhattan’s (Yorkville) Landgraf Flower Shop

A Yorkville Flower Shop

Every year visitors to NYC make sure they see the major sites around Rockefeller Center and 5th Avenue. This year’s Christmas  Card (blog) will  focus on a small Flower Shop located in Yorkville on Manhattan’s Upper Eastside.

Something wonderful happens each year
when poinsettias start to appear.

Suddenly strangers are quicker to smile,
neighbors more neighborly, at least for awhile.

We hear bells in the jingle of charitable quest,
and want to help others who are not as blessed.

Shoppers cross off lists in line at the mall,
sensing seasonal spirit that permeates all. With hope and happiness we are instilled, fresh feelings of charity and goodwill.

Christmas flowers, presents, songs, and bells,
favorite people and luscious smells.
Tell a tale of Christmas cheer,
a yuletide memory you hold dear.


In December when Christmas day draws near
We’re reminded it’s the very best time of year!
