After an awakening thanks to many of you, we will be staying at the Roosevelt Hotel Dec 30 - Jan 3.
It will be my husband and my in laws on this trip, all of us 1st timers. We have tickets for NYE at a place called Zengo and my in-laws are going to see the Christmas spectacular. Are plans other than that are up in the air.
Top of the Rock, 9/11 and history museum, Central Park, Rockefeller center (I've never been ice skating and excited to be there for my first time) I'm open for other rinks though, if that isn't the best option. We would like to go to the Brooklyn Brewery, but they aren't doing tours during those dates. Any others as an option?
Our budgets pretty open, we don't want anything 5 star so anything that would appeal to us should be in our price range.
Is the Christmas market at Union Square worth checking out? Harlem also appeals to us, but we don't really have a set destination for going up there, nor for Brooklyn, but both areas would be cool to experience.
As far as weather, layers I heard will suffice? I'm from Seattle so I'm thinking a bit colder version of that.
I hope we can all move on from the previous thread and make this a great trip for me and my family. We appreciate any help. We're all very excited about seeing the magic of NYC during the holiday :)
