Take a deep breath of that crisp, cool air, and enjoy the sparkling beauty of the city in the snow! A city quite dramatic, romantic, and inspiring where every year millions of people flock in the hopes of seeing iconic landmarks and buildings, climbing up the Skyscrapers in both searing, sweaty heat and frostbitten, icy cold.
New York is a booming metropolis known for skyscrapers, amazing friendly multi-cultured people, beautiful architecture, and pushy pedestrians. Your experience in the Big Apple can change on a dime simply based on what time of year you visit. New York is located in that exact sweet spot that gives you the highest searing highs and the lowest chilly lows.
New York City surely is among the most popular cities in the world and there are countless reasons why is that so. But, if you walk on the streets in winter you will see the city from a whole different and white dimension.
The city just alive with a certain charge brought in by holiday spirit, powder white snow, and the smell of cinnamon chestnuts being sold on street corners.
Bundle up Big Apple, true winter Wonderland!

This glowing place has a special charm in winter.
