If you have no choice but to go in winter or you think that this could be a good time to visit the city of skyscrapers, today we are going to make you just decide, because we are going to give you a few reasons for you to travel to New York during the coldest months of the year.
The Christmas spirit
Without a doubt, one of the best times to visit the Big Apple is at Christmas, since the spirit Christmas living there is incomparable: stained glass windows and decorated streets, discounts in shops and markets, the tree of Rockefeller Center, the festivities in Times Square ...
Another of the attractions of New York in winter are its incredible ice rinks. The most famous are found in the Rockefeller Center and in Central Park, although you can find other indoor and outdoor tracks in other areas of the city.
During winter the date is also NYC Restaurant Week (Restaurant Week). For a couple of weeks you will have the opportunity to visit some of the most prestigious restaurants in the city, where you can enjoy a 3-course meal at very affordable prices. Of course, you have to reserve the tables in advance.
Go to the theater
If one of your goals when traveling to New York is to go to the theater, you should know that in winter it is easier to get tickets for the wide billboard offered by theaters in Broadway.
Finally, it is worth traveling to New York in winter just to see parks like Central Park, Washington Square or Brooklyn Prospect Park covered in snow.
