Christmas in New York

Every year at Christmas I turn into Kevin McCallister in Home Alone 2 and see the city with new eyes. New York sparkles at Christmas. It’s concentrated in Midtown where the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree holds court and the Saks Fifth Avenue windows glitter beyond the crowds. But it’s also the small things: the trees wrapped in twinkle lights, lampposts adorned with wreaths and bows, storefronts decorated with garland and those Starbucks red cups. I’ve been able to spend a couple evenings doing some quintessential New York at Christmas things this season and it’s been great, especially since I usually don’t get around to doing these things until Christmas is over: like visiting Bryant Park and of course, seeing the tree.

Here are some photos of why I love New York at Christmas:

I also got the chance to see a new show on Broadway, Side Show, which I absolutely adored. I got tickets for free in exchange for a review on this blog (gotta love the perks) and I’m excited to share the story of the Hilton sisters with you guys. It was a moving musical with an amazing book and even better music. See more on that tomorrow! And follow along on my Instagram to see what other awesome Christmassy things I’m doing this season. And of course, whatever holiday you celebrate this season, I hope it’s happy and full of love.

  • I’ll get the limo and the cheese pizza ready ?

  • That is what I truly miss about living up near NYC, going to NYC during the holiday season. I miss seeing the tree and going to the Christmas show. I think I went every year from the time I was five until I moved South in 2003. I can remember one year, watching the ice skating rink and someone proposed, which was special to watch 🙂

    Absolutely stunning photos, by the way 🙂

    • Oh yeah I love seeing the proposals in Rockefeller Center! There was at least one when I was there. So cute! I think that I’d also miss the city at Christmas if I ever move away. Hopefully you get the chance to visit soon!

  • Lovely photos! Particularly the one of the angels at Rockefeller Center
    I also love NYC during this time of year and am raving about it over on my blog too!

  • Wow that’s so amazing my dream is to go to New York especially in the winter time!!! Thank you so much for this post I kind of feel like I was there with you.


    • Thanks for your comment! New York in the winter is beautiful, hope you get to see it soon!
