    It is the festive season and almost every neighborhood is in it's best garb, so despite it being winter, AJ and I always brave the streets and walk around any new place we head to. The same with Newark ensured some meorable moments for us.. I got to pose with several snowmen ;) And we sure saw some intersting architecture.
