December in New York City

by NYJ Team

One of the greatest cities to visit in the world in December is undoubtedly New York. This is the place where visitors and locals alike can truly experience the magic of the holiday season, as the whole city gets dressed up for the occasion. From the magnificent Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, to the angelic Christmas carol singers on every street corner, to the wonderful department store window displays along Fifth Avenue, New York in December is a treat for all the senses. There are countless holiday concerts and shows to take in, as well as the ultimate ‘Christmas in New York’ experience – ice-skating in one of the parks or at Rockefeller Center under the tree. New Year’s Eve in New York is one huge party, with street events, restaurants and bars participating until the early hours of the morning. Visitors can choose the classic New Year’s Eve experience by watching the ‘ball drop’ in Times Square at the stroke of midnight.    

Temperatures are quite cold during December in New York. Average highs are around 44 degrees Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius), while average lows can hit 32 degrees Fahrenheit, or a chilling zero degrees Celsius. This is no reason, however, to avoid the great things happening in the city over this time period. By packing appropriate clothing – long, wind and waterproof jackets, warm trousers, comfortable, waterproof walking shoes, gloves, hats and scarves – visitors will still be able to enjoy all that New York has to offer in December and more! 

New York is also a great time to get down to some serious Christmas shopping. With so much abundance and variety, it would be difficult not to find that right something for everyone! New York department stores simply vie with each other to get shoppers through their doors, with great products, enticing bargains and the most beautiful decorations ever seen.  Happy Holidays!
