All around Manhattan there are plenty of festive activities to take part in this month! Several neighborhoods around Manhattan will be hosting holiday markets where you can pick up those last minute gifts or find something perfect for that person you are stumped on what to get. Here are several of the holiday markets taking place in Manhattan this month, one of which you’ve probably passed by already. Two of them, Columbus Circle and Bryant park, are right within walking distance of your Riverbank apartment!
Bryant Park: Bryant Park’s winter village is one of the biggest holiday markets in NYC! Over 150 boutiques and shops will be setup throughout the park for guests to visit, shop and grab some holiday treats. The artisan boutiques and Europe inspired shops are open everyday until 8pm. Of course right in the center of all the fun is their famous ice skating rink where you can take a break from buying those last minute holiday gifts and enjoy winter in NYC. This little winter wonderland is located right down 42nd Street and is only about a ten minute walk from your Riverbank apartment.
Columbus Circle: The Columbus Circle holiday market is just a short subway ride away for our Riverbank residents, or a nice stroll through Hells Kitchen. Over 50 booths will be set up making for some great holiday shopping. Vendors in attendance include AJS Studios, Breezy Hill Orchard, Lotus Skin Care, Strand Bookstore, Spices and Tease and many more! You can find almost anything and something for everyone at this holiday market.
Union Square: Union Square comes to life even more than the rest of the year during the month of December! Head downtown for some holiday shopping, festive treats and holiday music. As you make your way through the vendors, you’ll feel as though your walking through a magical holiday town with the booths set up like the maze covered in red and white strips. Grab an apple cider and visit the stores to find handmade scarves and hats, holiday ornaments, artisan bowls and dishes and much more!
