Santa Loves Brooklyn

The Russian Futurist Vladimir Mayakovsky was moved when he first saw it in 1925, as he described in his poem "Brooklyn Bridge:" stretches on cables of string

to the feet of the stars.
I stare
 as an eskimo gapes at a train,

I seize on it 
as a tick fastens to an ear.

Brooklyn Bridge--
That's quite a thing!
