Top 5 NYC Winter Activities

Ted is not only a tour guide for Foods of NY Tours, he's also a proud staff member of the Greenwich Village Society for Historical Preservation. Yep, our guides really know their stuff.

Besides taking the Original Greenwich Village tour--led by Ted, of course!--here are Ted's recommendations for his favorite NYC winter activities. 

Bundle up and enjoy!

1. Ice skating at Bryant Park
It's a winter wonderland!


2. Neapolitan Christmas tree at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
A vivid eighteenth-century Neapolitan Nativity scene—embellished with a profuse array of diminutive, lifelike attendant figures and silk-robed angels hovering above—adorns the candlelit spruce for this longstanding holiday tradition. 



3. Morgan Library on a Friday evening (when it's free!)
Every holiday season, the Morgan displays Charles Dickens's original manuscript of A Christmas Carol in Pierpont Morgan's historic library. 



4. The Upper Manhattan historic homes: Dyckman FarmhouseMorris-Jumel MansionHamilton Grange
Are we in the country? Or are we just uptown? At these three places, it's hard to tell!
