The very best time to visit New York City for the holidays is the first week in December. For sure! It's not too cold in early December and the holiday tourists haven't shown up yet. You can holiday shop on 5th Avenue while you look at the remarkable holiday decorations and window displays. Our favorite windows are always at Bergdorf Goodman but we like to see them all! Take a stroll down into the West Village for a taste of classic New York townhouse decor. You'll find refreshed greenery, gorgeous wreaths and tasteful twinkle lights lining the cobblestone streets. Our favorite corner, (Skylar's first NYC apartment block) is West 4th street and West 12th Street. Pop into Cafe Cluny for a hot toddy mid stroll and continue the adventure.
