Not To Miss This December in NYC

December 8th, 2014
Looking for things to do in NYC this December? Check out our insider “NYC Musts” from your local New Yorkers:
  • Knock out your Christmas and Holiday shopping in one day on a Garment Center Tour. Purchase chic accessories, handbags, jewelry, dresses, coats, scarves, fur-gifts for the whole family at wholesale-only prices! And of course, a little self-gifting is okay too!
  • Stop by Bryant Park to check out the outdoor Holiday Vendors that surround the BP Ice Skating Rink. Burn some calories, take a spin on the ice, check out the fabulous BP Christmas tree and then grab a cappuccino and people watch.
  • The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, as always, is a must do if you’ve never seen it! Each year the music, costumes and talented Rockettes & performers grow more exquisite!
  • Take a shopping break and stroll Holiday Under the Stars, an state-of-the-art holiday light display at the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle. The spectacle features a dozen 14-foot LED stars that do a colorful “dance,” flashing more than 16.7 million color mixes in time to classic yuletide tunes.

  • Museum at FIT opens a new exhibit exploring the Counterfeit Industry and how it affects the fashion world, Faking It. “Fashion should slip out of your hands. The very idea of protecting the seasonal arts is childish. One should not bother to protect that which dies the minute it is born.” Coco Chanel
  • See New Year’s Times Square Ball Drop on December 31st. Ring in the New Year of 2016 in the heart of New York City, Times Square! Or stream it live here.
