NYC is officially fully dressed with twinkles! I feel so fortunate to live close to NYC for many different reasons, the biggest one being Christmas in New York. It just doesn’t get more beautiful than that! And that’s coming from someone who’s spent Christmas in different cities from around the world. Although each city has its own charm, NYC Christmas-time is one of my favorite spots. This weekend, we decided to spend an entire day getting lost in the city streets; we went on a little adventure strolling through Manhattan’s holiday charm.There are so many festivities happening that I thought I would share a list of the events that make NYC Christmas so special.

Winter village in Byrant Park is hands down my favorite. So magical and festive!
Mine too, it was so beautiful <3
I’ve been loving the Union Square Holiday Market this year! It’s the best one, in my opinion 🙂

We went around Christmas 3 years ago and it was so fun! So much to see and do!
is it really cold now in NY? Do you live in Manhattan and if not, are there differences in how each neighborhood is decorated?
It’s on my mom’s bucket list to visit NYC around the holidays, and I’d love to do it too! There is always so much to see and do in New York, so I imagine it’s even BETTER this time of the year.
I have been to NYC but never during Christmas. I have to put this on my list, seems like there is so much going on.
I love the holidays in big cities! My sister was just in NYC the other week and asked for some of my recommendations from when I lived in the area several years ago. I definitely suggested a few of these items!
I was in Bryant Park last weekend as well as a few other places. Love it there this time of year!
I love New York, and would love to visit for Christmas one year! There are so many great things to do this time of year, like your post shows 🙂 Bookmarking this for later!
We just got back on Wed. from NYC and had a wonderful time. I commented to daughter that all of the window displays and twinkling lights did put me in the Christmas spirit. And on one street they were selling Christmas trees that smelled so good and just added to the experience.
I’m not from NYC but I do plan on visiting there! If I end up going in the winter then this would be really helpful to know. Thanks!
Living in NYC, I forget that there’s so much holiday fun here! Love this guide. I will definitely be doing some of these this Christmas season!
New York during the Holidays is on my bucket list! I’m hoping to convince my boyfriend to take me next year – it seems like such a magical place at this time of year! This is a great guide, thank you!
These are all some great ideas, and I really wish I was in NYC for the holidays! Thanks for sharing, definitely bookmarking this for when I do go!
I love the lists! This was such an easy read, I wish when I had gone to NYC a few years ago during the Holidays I had had this list!
