Best is to ask the NYC forum:

tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g60763-i5-New_York…

Maybe also read a book about New York first and make hotelreservations that time of year.

A better question might be..... what is there not to do in NYC during Xmas.

Honestly, this might be the single best destination in the world to spend the holidays if you have the budget to do so. There is probably no other place as festive for Xmas as NYC and there more going on in that city than pretty much anywhere in the world.

Have fun picking your Xmas destination.

Not a huge fan of the financial district in lower Manhattan. I would spend more time in midtown where the majority of the attractions are. Try Bryant Park between Grand Central Station and Times Square, very festive and they have a nice ice rink. Rockefeller Center will have a massive Xmas tree worth finding and its worth visiting Macy's Department Store which is fully decked out in Christmas decorations, near Penn Station and Madison Square Garden. Have a slice of excellent pizza at Pizza Suprema nearby as well. See link (w/pictures) if interested.

And take in a show or two on Broadway or in the other districts like Chelsea. Sleep No More is fantastic. See link (w/pictures) if interested.

These are just a few thoughts for starters. Like I mentioned above, the options for things to do in NYC are endless. Just pick and choose, you can't go bored in NYC.

rohit.........................in addition to checking in with the New York City forum for expert local advice, why not browse through a couple of guides books on NYC................this will help to familiarize yourself with the "lay of the land" so to speak as guide books have city maps in them..................and subway maps too...........go to your local lending library and check some out, and see if you can get a dvd on NYC while you're at it..............since your brother seems to live there, use him as a resource as well...............

Well, since post #8 is mentioning favorites, over the Christmas season, skating at Rockefeller Plaza is definitely at the top of the list ,as is a visit to the Top of the Rock, and also while in the 'hood, stop by the NBC Store at 30 Rockefeller for a lot of fun shopping....all of their shows are represented here, plus Christmas ornaments....................you can also ice skate in Central Park, and Bryant Park.....................skate rentals available.......

Oh man... reading this is making me reconsider out Xmas holiday plans in favor of NYC again this year. What a great winter destination to visit and the perfect time to go.
