The Top NYC Christmas snaps you can’t go home without

November 29, 2013


New York is amazing all year round, but around Christmas the magic goes into serious overdrive!

If you’re jetting off to the Big Apple in the run-up to Christmas, there are some sights you just HAVE to get a snap of. Trust me, you’ll regret it if you go home without them!

The Christmas Trees

New York has some of the BEST Christmas trees you’ll ever see. Check out the gigantic one at the Rockefeller Center Plaza, the “Wicked, Wild, and Wonderful” origami tree at the Museum of Natural History and the New York Stock Exchange tree on Wall Street!

Macy’s Santaland


Fan of the film ‘Miracle on 34th Street’? Don’t miss the opportunity to have your photo taken with Santa at Macy’s Santaland.

The bright lights of Broadway


You’re in New York – a photo of the bright lights of Broadway is compulsory! And while you’re there, why not get ultra-festive by going to see a Christmas-themed show?

The Big Piano


The famous toy shop FAO Schwarz is a wonderland of Christmas shopping for kids (and big kids!) – Don’t forget to have your taken on the “Big Piano” from the film “Big”.

That world-famous skyline


Travel up to the Top of the Rock, for one of the best views you could get of that incredible skyline and the twinkling Christmas lights below.

Ice Skaters


The iconic Rockefeller ice rink looks stunning, but is so busy you might just need to watch and snap some pics. If you actually want to get in on the action, try the Wollman Rink in Central Park.
