A Travel Guide to Winter in New York

Baby, it’s cold outside, but there is plenty of fun to be had in New York. You can still enjoy the sights of sounds of the city without freezing yourself to death. Don’t hibernate this winter season. Instead, embrace the cold weather and enjoy some of these wintertime activities.

Dreamland Roller Disco

Forget figure skating when you can go roller skating instead. You’ll be much warmer. Dreamland Roller Disco is home to a 15,000 square-foot indoor roller rink located at Industry City. There’s also figure skating (if you prefer), dance classes, hula hoop hour, and themed roller disco for adults and kids.

The roller rink doesn’t its doors until Dec. 7 and lasts through April 7. This is the first time that Dreamland will be inside in decades. It’s usually outside at Prospect Park during the hot summer months. Brave the cold weather and choose to skate indoors instead.

Hot Chocolate Festival

Grab some hot chocolate while you’re out. Don’t let the winter season go by without enjoying a mug of hot cocoa. Check out the Hot Chocolate Festival at the City Bakery during the month of February. This place is great for hot chocolate addicts since there’s a different flavor for each day of the month.

It’s a great way to have a cozy date or to meet up with family and friends. The City Bakery also has plenty of good for you to feast one. They have cupcakes, cakes, cookies, baguettes, and more. You’ll find yourself spending more time here than you intended.

Winter JazzFest

Want to check out some music? Winter Jazzfest comes to New York in early January. It’s one of the best concert experiences in New York City. Greenwich Village is home to this two-night event, which runs from Jan. 4, 2019 to Jan. 12, with a mini show on Jan. 5, and the main event on Jan. 11 and Jan. 12.

Over 100 independent artists and rising acts perform at Winter Jazzfest. Most of it is held at several venues in Lower Manhattan. The remaining shows take place at venues at Brooklyn Steel, Le Poisson Rouge, and Nublu. Advanced tickets and two-day passes are available on the official Winter Jazzfest website.

Nutcracker Rouge

This is not your child’s Nutcracker. For an adult take on the Christmas classic, head over to Théâtre XIV for a wild night. Company XIV is known for their shows like “Ferdinand: Boylesque Bullfight.” Their outrageous take the Tchaikovsky classic is one to behold. It features an ensemble of opera singers, aerialists, acrobats, circus performers, and burlesque artists for a dazzling spectacle that lasts through January.

Bryant Park Winter Village

Get started on your winter festivities now by checking out Bryant Park Winter Village. It’s home to a 17,000-square-foot ice skating rink and over 170 shops, kiosks, and eateries. The Village even has an outdoor beer garden and a different rink-side pop-up restaurant.

Bryant Park Winter Village has been open long before the Halloween festivities kicked off. The shops close on Jan. 2, 2019, and both The Rink and The Lodge will close in March 2019.
