We are planning our third trip to NYC at the end of the year, either on the way to or on the way back from Europe. Which means we can either visit in December or January. I had originally wanted to see the city at Christmas time with all the decorations etc but as we would be there early December I've noticed this is a popular time of year and it is expensive, so the alternative would be to go at the end of January. I have previously been to NYC in the summer and fall and loved it but definitely want to go in the winter.
I'm wondering if you think its worth paying extra to see the city at Christmas time or whether visiting in January is just as good.
Thank you in advance for your advice!
