I don't usually share my outings, but with so many visiting NYC over the holidays, I thought these might be of interest.
Garment District Free Art Show through April 2016
The Carnival, which starts around 41st street and ends on 37th street, features eleven large to life whimsical statues each symbolic of bringing luck!
The statues are extremely colorful and big!! It made more 40 minute walk to their place very enjoyable
Bryant Park- over 100 fun holiday kiosks
I loved this.. In addition, there were many little kiosk type shops that opened up just for the holidays in Bryant Park on West 40th between 5th and 6th Ave- It was so much fun going around the wintery type wonderland with all the little shops all lit up for Christmas!
Just because I mentioned these things, I'm including a link with other like holiday markets in NYC!!
