For many, winter is the best season to visit New York. Why? Well, because in winter some of the most beautiful events of the year take place.
Garden State Plaza Mall
Shopping in New York is at most of you determined anyway on the to-do list. But what if the snow blocks the sidewalks and the wind is so icy that it is not fun to explore 5th Avenue?
Then, of course, there are numerous opportunities to simply shift your shopping into indulgence. Not far from the city center you will find, for example, the Garden State Plaza Mall and the new shopping center in the Oculus. Proper bargain hunters, of course, attract it into one of the cheap outlet centers in and around New York.
Shopping in New York seems to be on everyone’s Bucket List. But what if the snow blocks the sidewalk and the strong wind does not even bring you to leave your hotel to stroll over 5th Avenue?
Luckily, there is a number of great shopping centers in the New York area, where you can easily move your shopping experience inside. Our favorites are the Garden State Plaza Mall and the Outlets at Jersey Gardens. Both shopping centers in New Jersey can be reached by bus from the Port Authority in Midtown Manhattan.
If you want to stay nearby, you should make your way to the Oculus in Lower Manhattan, which also offers a few shops. Both the Woodbury Outlets and the Empire Outlets are outdoors and have no indoor areas except the shops.
La Pecora Bianca menu
Foodies Beware: In winter, the NYC Restaurant Week takes place again, which means that you can look forward to many restaurant deals throughout the city. Thousands of travelers and locals are looking forward to this event every year because it is a great opportunity to try new restaurants!
The NYC Restaurant Week has been taking place since 1982 every two years in summer and winter. Only a few restaurants participated in the action, while this year is over 380 participated restaurants. Over time, the duration of the action has been extended further, so that today we can enjoy great and favorable food instead of just a week for almost a month.
Fashion events in East Village
This is probably one of the most interesting things that can be done in New York in February. Whole street trains are closed and interruptions to catwalks. It is one of the biggest fashion events of the year. Twice a year, Influencer, celebrities, editors, photographers, and fashionistas from around the world for a week to New York City to see the new collections of their favorite designers and brands.
Boat tour in Midtown
Fortunately, beautiful boat tours can be made all year round. There is then the possibility to look for a warm place inside the boat and just to go for free-free pictures outside.
Just choose one of our most beautiful boat tours in New York and looks at the winter manhattan from the water. On solemn occasions such as New Year’s Eve, there are also special boat tours that you should definitely look at.
Food Market in Dumbo
We love the Food Markets in New York: The selection is huge, the value for money is great and you can warm up after your winter walks through New York.
There are really many good food markets in NYC, the Time Out Food Market in Dumbo is my personal favorite. Why? You can enjoy a free panoramic view of the Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Lower Manhattan skyline from there.
Art & Culture Spot in Midtown
The Radio City Music Hall is a respected concert and event hall on Sixth Avenue and is already recognized by far from the conspicuous exterior lighting. Throughout the year, concerts and events take place here, e.g. The popular Radio City Christmas spectacle with the Rockettes. It is the most famous Christmas show that you can see in New York.
Sport events in Midtown
The Super Bowl usually takes place in February and the rest of America also plays NYC crazy in the days. In the US, this event is the sporty highlight of the year. The half-time show is at its finest and every year big names like Bruno Mars or Beyonce during the half-time show. If you are looking for a nice bar this evening, you should visit Connolly’s Pub & Restaurant at Times Square and other sports bars in the area.
The weather is nice in New York City and you want to escape for a moment of the noise and typical New York? Then a trip to Governors Island is just right for you. The Governors Island Ferry brings you with the Governors Island Ferry for $ 2 via the East River.
