    Hi Meg,

    Nice post about NYC during the holidays, glad you enjoyed your visit. I live here and I’m amazed every year by the transformation this city takes in December leading up to NYE. Sounds corny- but its pretty magical.

    If you’re ever back in town and looking to see the 9/11 Memorial… check this website first: and get your passes before hand. The line gets c-r-a-z-y and you save sooooo much time if you get passes before you visit. It’s also pretty amazing at night- so if you can go towards 6/7pm and see the memorials all lit up… its just gorgeous and you don’t get all the distractions of downtown buildings and noise after the sunsets. 🙂

    Growing up in NYC Christmas was always the most magical time – even for natives. We would go ice skating at Rockefeller Center, walk 5th Ave for all the stores lit up and the incredible windows, light candles at St Patricks and just walk around town being amazed. Even though I live in the beautiful city by the bay, San Francisco, I still try to get back around Christmas every few years. Glad you had a great time!

    My husband is from Philly but his parents live in New Jersey now so this was my first east coast Christmas, and we went into New York City for a day just so I could see it all lit up for the holidays! We ate lunch at the Todd English Food Hall (downstairs inside The Plaza) and it was delicious. After a quick visit to the Whitney Museum we had to catch our train but I loved being in the city in December and can’t wait to go back!

    That sounds like SUCH a fun way to spend the holidays! What a sweet husband you have! I’ve always wanted to walk around NYC during the holidays!
