Yes, yes, we know. You are not to be mistaken for a tourist. You are much cooler and have better things to do than waiting in long lines for expensive and usually frustrating activities. You hate crowds, and are totally content seeing the glittering Manhattan skyline from the comfort of your roof. Maybe you don’t even celebrate Christmas!
That’s all fine, maybe even great. However. Christmas In New York is a storied, magical thing, filled with consistent (albeit crowded) holiday wonderment and a surprising lack of cynicism if you approach it correctly. And truly, no one will take away your cool points if you take one day off from your usual routine and run around Manhattan like a giddy child with a sugar rush. We promise, it’ll be fun.
