We went there to see the Christmas lights at 3650 21st street, Tom and Jerry's lights. It was beautiful as every year. Amazing work !The view of the city from there was so beautiful. Made us want to move there. The houses are all so different and big and an old moneyed neighbourhood.

Thank ManjuRam
