This time of year you can't scurry to a subway station without running smack-dab into some serious holiday cheer: festive lights lining the streets, Christmas trees for sale on every corner, and mulled wine popping up on menus left and right. Despite the below-freezing windchill, there is no place in the world we would rather be during the holidays than New York City.
For merrymaking, we like to revisit the classics — watching The Nutcracker or ice skating in Central Park. But, we also love to start new traditions — shopping at the Bryant Park Winter Village, spending an evening at a hip bar in Brooklyn. So, we’ve rounded up some of Gotham City’s festive finest to indulge any and all of your seasonal desires. Whether you’re naughty or nice, however, is entirely up to you.
