Enjoy the Holidays with the Christmas markets in New York

If you’re going to New York during December, you may like to have information on how to celebrate the holiday season. I went over some of the different activities in this article. And now I will be sharing some more tips on some of the holiday shops around the city. I highly recommend that you visit some of these Christmas Markets!

Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park

Bryant Park is a beautiful park with a wonderful Christmas market during winter. It’s a very unique place to shop because the vendors are from different parts of the world and have really interesting items to offer. Not only that but also the Bryant park ice skating rink is located right next to the shops. It is one of my favorite locations during the holidays.

– Daily from 11am to 8pm,
