Around the City
It might be cold outside, but it's a great time to explore New York. From museums to tourist attractions, exploring great neighborhoods or taking in some shows, check out the links below for some interesting things to do:
New York Times: Arts and Literature Weekend | January
The Times Center | 242 West 41st Street
Celebrate 1Arts & Leisure Weekend with these legends of film, theater, music, television, dance, media and more-plus special events and live perfromances. For
more information click here.
City Pond at Bryant Park | December 19th- March 3rd
Sixth Ave, (between 40th and 42nd Sts)
Bryant Park’s 17,000-square-foot outdoor rink is free and open late. Don’t get too excited—the admission may be gratis, but you’ll have to shell out $14 to rent skates (or BYO). Still, it’s a veritable winter wonderland: After your skate, warm up at spacious rinkside restaurant Celsius, or browse the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park. If you want to practice your lutzes and axels with ample spinning room, try visiting during off-peak hours.
Snowflake Spectacular | Until January 7th
611 Fifth Ave, New York
The Great White North descends on Saks Fifth Avenue’s ten-story facade this season. This year’s LED holiday light projection features snow flurries and a yeti, who according to a tie-in tale by Daily Monster creator Stefan J. Bucher, came down from Siberia to live on the roof of the department store (as is the wont of fashion-conscious horror beasts the world over). The two-minute show repeats every seven to eight minutes and ties in with the display in the store's 12 windows.
