New York City in Winter – A blogger’s guide

New York City in Winter – A blogger’s guide

Only a few months ago, I’ve been to New York with my family during summer season. But as we all know: there’s never enough NYC right?! So due to lucky circumstances, I’ve been back in the Big Apple just now in November. And it was the first time for me visiting during autumn/ winter season. So basically, New York is worth a visit all year right? But still  in winter, you want to feel extra comfortable and warm.

For sightseeing, you should definitely check out my last NYC Guide. But moreover: a big Must for me during Christmas and winter season was to do Ice Skating. You can do so at Central Park, Bryant Park or in front of the Rockefeller Center. 

And now in no specific order: more impressions and places to eat and explore during your visit in New York City!

    Liebe Tina, WOW, was für wunderschöne Eindrücke, vielen Dank, dass du sie mit uns geteilt hast. Ich war vor Jahren schon einmal in der Weihnachtszeit in New York, gut, das ist fast zwanzig Jahre her und ich glaube fast, inzwischen hat sich einiges verändert, aber erst kürzlich haben mein Mann und ich beschlossen, dass wir wieder einmal gerade im Advent nach New York wollen und mit deinen Bildern hast du diesen Wunsch nur bestätigt. So eine besondere Stadt – zu jeder Jahreszeit. Ich wünsche dir eine ganz besonders schöne letzte Woche vor den Feiertagen, alles, alles Liebe, x S.Mirli

    How cozy to visit NYC during winter! I’ve been in January and it was really cozy, but crazy cold! Would love to go early fall though or right before Christmas for the ultimate festive feeling. So many chic and inspiring pics as always Tina! Xx
