Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park

Visit Bank of America’s Winter Village in Bryant Park to shop from more than 100 vendors in a Christmas market-like atmosphere. The only difference is these aren’t your typical market stalls — each vendor has a tiny miniature shop to display their goods and wares. Just like a Christmas market, you can find anything you could imagine — gifts ranging from food, décor, pet products, toys, jewelry, accessories and more.

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree

The Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center is an iconic symbol of the holidays in New York City. If you can’t make the tree lighting ceremony Dec. 2, you can stop by any night until midnight to check out the lights in person.

The Christmas ornaments on Sixth Avenue make the perfect photos and look gorgeous in the snow. They’re near Radio City Music Hall and pretty easy to find. Just look for the giant red holiday ornaments, Christmas tree lights, nutcrackers and more.
