““…I often take my dog out to the park for a walk.  When the weather is just right, we escape the hustle and bustle of the city and head towards the Mall…and walk beneath the beautiful trees that hang down each side of the path—a scene just like the one Michael has so beautifully captured in this book.” – from the foreword of New York in Four Seasons

Kristin Chenoweth

“Whether you use A Very New York Christmas as a planner for Christmases future or memory book of Christmases past, this little book makes a delightful Christmas present. Featuring the beautiful artwork found on Michael Storrings’ NYC-themed holiday ornaments, the book takes readers on a colorful watercolor tour of Manhattan and the other boroughs…”


“…The 12 Days of Christmas in New York is a clever adaptation of the beloved Christmas carol….the book uses warm-hearted, whimsical illustrations to celebrate the 12 things that everyone loves about New York City at Christmas. You’d be hard-pressed to find turtledoves, French hens, and milk maids in this city, so instead the author captures the perfect New York City moments with staples like chestnut vendors, horse-drawn coaches, and the perennial sidewalk Santas to create a portrait of what the holiday season really feels like in the Big, Apple. 12 Days of Christmas in New York City gives a perfect impression of what it means to spend the holidays in the world’s most famous city.”

Quest Magazine

“A Very New York Christmas gives visitors and residents alike the chance to take home with them the many wonders of the holiday season in New York. From the tree at Rockefeller Center to the illuminated animals at the Bronx Zoo—Michael Storrings shows us New York City at it’s glittering best.”

The Honorable David N. Dinkins (Mayor of New York, 1990--1993)

“Nobody celebrates Christmas like New Yorkers. And no town gets dressed up like New York at Christmastime. It’s a feast for the eyes. It’s happiness and good cheer on every corner and Michael Storrings has captured it all for you in this book—A Very New York Christmas.”

Regis Philbin

“Michael Storrings’s wonderful watercolors evoke so much of the enchantment of Christmas in the city that I felt as a child and still feel today, and love sharing with my own children” – from the foreword of A Very New York Christmas
