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.
Are we in the country? Or are we just uptown? At these three places, it's hard to tell!
Check out these iconic NYC windows for a little eye candy during your winter stroll.
