For a second, I thought Ralph Kramden himself was picking me up outside his TV home since 1958, WPIX. But it’s pretty awesome nonetheless: A vintage bus brings back some welcome old-school grit to 42nd Street, the MTA’s gift to midtown in December. #bus #mta #oldschool #vintage #retro #nyc #christmas

You’ll be able to ride in a 1930s NYC subway car like this one, which I jumped on last year, this Sunday! The holiday retro trains return for four Sundays in December along the M route, from lower Manhattan to LIC. Truly one of the best things about Christmas in New York. (And keep an eye out for the retro buses on 42nd Street.) #railfan #subway #christmas #depressionera #1930s

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire! Well, no open fire, but these chestnuts were spotted at a midtown street cart, ready to add some  holiday cheer to the usual fare of water dogs and pretzels. #chestnuts #holidays #christmas #igchristmas #nyc #yuletide #streetfood

Found! The master one-inch tapes for WPIX’s annual holiday showings of “March of the Wooden Soldiers.” Gotta love the turquoise tape cases with the orange 11 Alive stickers. Ahh, the 1970s. More finds from the long-lost PIX vault later. #tbt #throwbackthursday #laurelandhardy #oldmovies #pix11 #thanksgiving #christmas
