10 Great things to do in NYC at Christmas time..


Well, of course there’s

  1. “The Tree” at Rockefeller Center – also there is Ice Skating, The Christmas Show with the Rockettes, The NBC Studios, and standing at the windows of the Today Show.
  2. You may want to attend a live taping of Dave Letterman or Saturday Night Live
  3. From 49th Street, stroll up 5th.  You’ll start at the American Girl Place and then head north to Saks, Tiffany and end at FAO Schwarz.
  4. From FAO Schwarz, you can enter Central Park West.  Take a horse and carriage ride, visit the zoo and have a bite at Tavern on the Green.
  5. Check out Times Square – in the middle you’ll see TKTS .  Here you can purchase ½ price tickets to same day Broadway shows.
  6. Get yourself to the top of the Empire State Building.  If possible, go on a Tuesday when crowds are the lightest.
  7. Visit Santaland at Macy’s Heraldsquare (34th Street)
  8. Check out the windows at Bloomingdales http://gonyc.about.com/od/christmassights/tp/christmaswindow.htm and grab some lunch at nearby Papaya King
  9. Check out the bling in the Diamond District on 47th Street

10. Go to Jekyl and Hydes in the Village http://www.jekyllpub.com/


Special Hints:

FYI:  NYC = Manhattan – They are one in the same.

If you can avoid driving into the city – do so.  Otherwise you’ll pay exorbitant parking fees and be stuck to touring around where your car is parked.

Instead, use NJ Transit Buses, or the NY Waterway Ferry (with FREE buses on the NY side to shuttle you around the city).

Don’t be afraid of the NYC Subway System.  It’s the cheapest and fastest way around NY.
