Post up all you New Yorkers!


Recommended Posts

Hello all New Yorkers. I am from Da Bronx. I was happy to see the thread for New Yorkers.

It seems as if I'm always doing something Christmas related in the off season. I am rebuilding my animated crain this year. The other animated items I have built, are Santa going up and down a chimney, a see saw, skaters going around a rink, a dump truck and a bulldozer.

Hello Jimmy

I am from the other end of the state. I am currently working on some new ideas for my display. I don't have any homemade decorations yet, but with the state of the state and being unemployed, I will scrounge for parts to build decorations. The project that I really want to build is a train to go around my 4 acre lot. Do you have some pictures of your display?? I have some of last years in my profile.

Hi Steve

I think I was able to upload some pictures. I was only able to upload 5 pictures. That was all that I was allowed. Let me know if you are able to open the file, if not I can e-mail them to you. I think if you go to my profile you will be able to view the pictures. (I think).

Hey Jimmy,

Cool display!! I did not see any pics in your profile. This years display was 3 times larger than 2007. My most recent find was an 8' sign(the kind that you place the plastic letters on). The guy was junking it so I grabbed it. It just has to be put back together. The wind blew out the plastic and it rolled down the road. I have to weld a few braces on to it and get the plastic letters.

It's been a long road but.... I FINALLY got my display running tonight!

WHEW!!!!!!! I have to adjust the timing on a few things and fix one string of lights but it's working!

Thank you Planet Christmas for the inspiration and the knowledge found here. And of course a big thanks to all the great people who are so willing to give advice and share ideas.

Woo Hooo!

Can you tell I happy? :santasmileyitty:
