Top 10 NYC Apartment Buildings Where Santa is Likely to Land

Santa has a lot on his mind and an awfully lot of chimneys to survey, so he generally now starts at the top.  That means that he’s likely to squeeze down New York by Gehry at 8 Spruce Street first and then hurry off to the four lit spires of Zeckendorf Towers on Union Square next before moving on to the three shining lots of the Beresford on Central Park West and then down to the two lit towers of the Time Warner Center on Columbus Circle.  Then, its across town to the bright lights atop One Beacon Court with a little side trip to be serenaded by the chorus on the setbacks on Trump Tower.  The last stop, of course, will be the Close at The Chelsea Enclave on Ninth Avenue where Clement Moore jotted down “It was the night before Christmas.”  Santa is nostalgic, you know.
