Travel :: Christmas in New York!

I have been bursting with joy these past few days, because Ryan has a last-minute trip to NYC planned for work which means I get to tag along!  And when I say bursting, I literally mean breaking out into spontaneous song and dance {in particular Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" and Annie's "NYCCCC"...I know, real mature}.  I love New York 365 days a year, but during the holiday season?  That is almost too much excitement for me to handle!

So I wanted to ask, do you have any recommendations of must-see places, shops, neighborhoods, restaurants, etc?  I will be there for almost six days {four in Times Square and the rest with my sister in Brooklyn} and will have the days to myself so I plan on doing lots of exploring with my camera in-hand {my favorite!}  Any tidbits would be greatly appreciated :)

  1. I love Christmas in the city! Have you been to the Highline yet? It's one of my favorite places! The walk is beautiful.

  2. omgsh the city is so beautiful right now-- esp at night. I'd say to take a stroll along 5th ave (mid-upper 50th street) -- all the store fronts have beautifullllll lighting! Also, if you have the chance, you should check out both the Bryant Park holiday market (& maybe get some ice skating in while you're there) and the Union Sq holiday market! -- they really get you in the spirit of the holidays :) xx
