Currently in New York City

Coming from a small town in Pennsylvania, I am not used to having more to do in my area than driving around the same neighborhoods and going to the same local stores, let alone the number of activities that are in New York. With Halloween just ending and us all anticipating Thanksgiving due to that initiating holiday season, we need to keep ourselves busy. It can be overwhelming with the amount that there is to do with the constant feeling we could be missing out on the best things to do, which is why I am here to make sure we all don’t miss out on anything or our spending too much money before the holidays. What I think is one of the best parts of wintertime in New York is the holiday markets that are in different parts of town and have an immense variety of shops that can pertain to everyone. One of the holiday markets is at Bryant Park and opens in the beginning of November. It has shops and an adorable ice-skating rink with cute scenery surrounding it if you don’t feel like spending the money on skating. The second holiday market is in Union Square but doesn’t open until later in the month, the 16th. Even if you don’t want to spend money at the markets, which takes extreme willpower, just spending time walking around can be just as much fun because of how festive the markets are. In addition to these events, at the Museum of Arts and Design, there will be an exhibit highlighting all of Taylor Swifts most famous outfits on display which is perfect for the people who love Taylor Swift and those who can appreciate fabulous fashion. Luckily, if you don’t have time to make it during the holiday season, it is around until March! These activities along with finding local flea markets, parks with good scenery, and starting to shop for the holiday season are all good ways to keep us busy while we wait for the end of November and for December. I know we all want this month to fly by, so I hope these activities help and that I can report back next season with more activities!
