. . . and the winner goes to Boston's show complete with the Boston Pops. They are so pretty over the Charles River. Besides, Boston definitely had the best orchestra!
Actually, it's not quite fair to New York because I didn't get to see their show because our Knoxville station thought it was more important to broadcast the Knoxville show. When I lived in Cincinnati, I always thought New York had the best because they were so pretty out there in the harbor.
I also saw portions of the Washington DC show while watching the Knoxville one. It's called channel surfing! Of course, weather put a damper on DC show.
