When stories like "The Night Before Christmas" were written, New York was rich in single-family homes with fireplaces to heat the homes. Nearly 200 years later, apartments far outnumber single-family homes and city kids are asking how Santa can come to visit them. That question is easier to answer in the following listings - a fireplace is the centerpiece of the living room all year round, and ideal for hanging stockings and displaying decorations during the holiday season.
