Even a city as large and extreme as New York City gets into the holiday spirit, although in a way completely unique from any other city in the world. A combination of long held traditions and more modern but no less fun experiences have crafted the Christmas festivities New York enjoys today and that make it one of the best places to visit during the holidays.
I recently was a guest of the Marriott Marquis, one of the most iconic hotels in New York and a perfect location from which to launch your visit and see the best the city has to offer. Even though I was here working I had some time to explore on my own. I spent the day walking around New York, soaking in the Christmas feeling. Every block seemed to feature roasting nuts, busy shoppers and the constant ringing of bells for the annual charity drive. There’s nothing like a New York City Christmas, as these photos show.
