Holiday Lights on 181st Street

A stroll down 181st Street from Ft. Washington to Cabrini Blvd. reveals that this section of Hudson Heights is particularly festive!  Regardless of religious affiliation, the Hudson Heights Gazette (HHG) thinks the lights and decoration bring a great sense of cheer to the neighborhood!

Take a virtual stroll with us here...

At the first corner you'll see Starbucks....corporate mandated decorations that are identical to
all the other Starbucks in the city?  Probably.  But we still like snowflakes.

Next door we have Moscow on the Hudson
Going to a dinner party? Pick up a box of decadent pastries and treats!
(BTW - did you know that there was a movie called Moscow on the Hudson
starring Robin Williams?!?!
181st Street Bakery & Deli
Sporadic Hudson Heights blogger Patrick Moschitto recommends the egg & cheese on a roll.

 Next door is the Groom Team - perfect spot to get cleaned up for the Holiday Parties!

Across the way, it's cozy inside Sushi Yu 2 with their festive tree just inside the doorway.  This Japanese restaurant is great for dining in or take-out!
One of the neighborhood's newest editions, Saggio, is about to celebrate it's 1-year anniversary.  Intrepid HHG photographer Peter Smith's pick is the Papardelle with Lamb Ragu followed by a generous serving of the amazing fig gelato.

Cabrini Wines is known for its vast array of wines from all over the world.  They generally have Holiday packs at a great price....the perfect way to prep for a party or a host/hostess gift.

Neighborhood newbie Le Cheile shines with the eponymous house beer for $5. 
HHG contributor Melissa also enjoys the Chicken Parm & farmer's side of peas. 

The tree at 181 Cabrini.  HHG Founder Chris Rizzo's preferred meal here is:
James' Special Chicken and a glass of the Cabrini Malbec.

Happy holidays!  We hope you'll visit one or more of our great neighborhood establishments before the end of 2011.  Support the hood - go local!
