Winter in NYC

Although winter seems like it’s left us early this year, there are some of us who actually long for the season. Despite the bitter cold some of us (me!) try desperately to escape – winter truly plays an integral part in the idyllic New York City experience. When I’m bundled up to my eyes, whether I’m walking through the streets or stopping for a hot chocolate – there is a quietness and a stillness in the city that only comes in this wonderland season.

Here are some things to do through the rest of winter in NYC:
