Check out alternative holiday attractions in NYC

There’s more to Christmas in New York than the Rockefeller Center Tree. This holiday season, get your fill of festive things to do by visiting some of New York City’s alternative holiday sights frequently missed by tourists and see what the locals see.

Meet in front of the Love Sculpture, just north of Times Square. Stroll through kiosks of pop-up holiday markets and past open-air ice-skating rinks. Learn about the transformation of St. Nicholas from 4th century Greek bishop to jolly old elf, the proliferation of feel-good sham charities in New York in the early 1900’s, and discover how historic New York City retailers, writers and artists helped shape modern American Christmas traditions celebrated worldwide, (specifically New York City). Also, check out the impressive UNICEF crystal snowflake at Tiffany’s, the holiday lights at Central Park and other overlooked elaborate holiday decorations for which New York city is famous.
