5 Things to do in NYC this Winter!
Traveling to NYC this winter? Here are just a few things we love to do during that cold winter months that you might love too!
While the famous tree lighting ceremony has already happened, there’s still a much to see at Rockefeller Center. Not only is there at 100 foot tree on display, but you can take in an accompanying light show and other gorgeous decorations. And to top it all off, it’s a great place to get any holiday shopping done!
Speaking of Rockefeller Center, this is just one of many places to ice skate in the city. Bryant Park, Van Cortland Park, and Central Park all have great ice skating rinks to check out! There’s even one in Coney Island!
Enjoy thrift shopping? Brooklyn Flea, which is normally hosted outside in Dumbo, is open year round! At the Brooklyn Flea you can find anything from furniture, to vintage clothing, to brand new handcrafted jewelry. This huge event is moved inside for the Winter season on Saturdays and Sundays in Industry City 241 37th St. Brooklyn, NY 11232.
This year at the New York Botanical Gardens you can view their spectacular Holiday Train Show. “Enchanting model trains zip through a display of 150 landmarks, each re-created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials—all under the twinkling glow of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Marvel at G-scale locomotives humming along among familiar sights such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, and Rockefeller Center on nearly a half-mile of track. This year’s exhibition showcases Midtown Manhattan’s iconic skyscrapers and other architectural wonders, featuring new replicas of the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, General Electric Building, and St. Bartholomew’s Church.” This show runs until January 15th.
Last, but not least, you can check out all of the gorgeous window displays that pop up around the city. Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s, Barneys, Bloomingdales, and more create the most incredible and fun window displays during the holiday season! These fun attractions make shopping for presents so much more fun.
We hope you enjoy this holiday season!
