    Favorite thing: Everyone knows that the Christmas and Holiday season is a great time to visit New York City .

    New York City Christmas Shows and Events
    New York City hosts many different Christmas shows and events throughout the Christmas season. From the Radio City Christmas Spectacular to Messiah sings at New York City Churches, these Christmas shows and events are sure to entertain you and fill you with holiday spirit.

    Rockefeller Center Christmas tree
    The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is typically lit the week after Thanksgiving. The Nutcracker Angels, snowflakes and fairies galore prance delicately across the Lincoln Center stage in a show that delights children and adult alike.

    Grand Central Terminal’s Kaleidoscope Light Show
    Christmas lights seem to diminish slightly next to the grand light displays on the Sky Ceiling. See this on the NY See The Holiday Lights! Tour.

    Ice Skating in New York City
    Ice skating at Rockefeller Center is a popular option if you want to ice skate in New York City, but did you know you have other options? In addition to skating at Rockefeller Center, you could try Central Park, Prospect Park, or one of these other choices.

    Christmas Shopping
    There is no where in the world that offers the array of shopping opportunities that New York City does. Here, I've selected some of the "greatest hits" for New York City visitors looking to enjoy the holiday highlights while shopping in New York City. Sometimes, window shopping at many of these stores can be even better than the real thing.

    A trip to New York just wouldn’t be complete without a seen a Christmas Party of New York. Believe it or not, there are some best party places of United States. For enjoy NYC Christmas party book your City Break New York before one month of Christmas or for more info you can also visist http://www.mynewyork.co.uk

    Christmas Party
    One of the peculiarities of NYC or the New York City Christmas Parties is the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. Rockefeller Center refers to the complex of buildings and plazas between 47th and 50th Streets and 5th and 7th Avenues in the New York City. The Christmas tree that beautifies Rockefeller Center is usually a Norway spruce. The tree at the center is generally 65 feet tall and 35 feet wide. Partying around this tree is a common phenomenon during Christmas in NYC.

    Dine Around Downtown

    Live Entertainment

    Favorite thing: Every year around the second week of May the Downtown Alliance holds the "Dine Around Down Town". About 50 restaurants located in the downtown New York participate in program offering $5 and $6 sample meals.

    It's held al fresco at the Chase Plaza and they only serve lunch from 11-3 (I think). For me it is a great way to try out that new burger or restaurant place without breaking my lunch budget. The lines are very long especially at the higher end restaurants.

    They even have entertainment which you can enjoy while having your lunch. Try to get here early so you can grab one of the many tables scrattered along the plaza.

    Feast of San Gennaro

    by Shaft28 Written Feb 13, 2003
    Rich & I at the Feast of San Gennaro

    Favorite thing: Late September in Ney York's Little Italy they hold the Feast of San Gennaro. Held on Mulberry Street between Canal and Houston Streets, the event lasts approximately 11 days and nobody leaves hungry. Street vendors serve up delicious sausage sandwiches and assorted Italian pastries (cannoli is everywhere!) - you'll want to, and should, sample everything.
    Have to admit, saw the most beautiful women in New York the day we were there.

    Fondest memory: My dad taking a picture of me next to the "Chicken Breast Sandwich" sign, me blocking the "Chicken" part. And to think, the old guy did it on accident.

    Well, I don't want to repeat...

    Favorite thing: Well, I don't want to repeat all the tips (although I did visit the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and so on) but if you have the chance to go in May/June check for the annual Gay Pride Parade. I didn't know about it and was lucky that the parade just happened to be the weekend I was there. Even if you're not gay (no offense) it is a spectacular event not to miss.

    Favorite thing: see a parade! If you're lucky, New York will hold one of its many parades along Fifth Avenue. When we were there we managed to see the Columbus Day parade.
