There are many things New Yorkers do better than everyone else, from guzzling coffee to jaywalking. And if there’s one time of year that exemplifies this, it’s the holidays. Gotham’s yuletide amazingness is well documented and it’s little wonder why. At its best, NYC is a magical, rosy-cheeked wonderland, from its ice-skating rinks andholiday windows to its astonishingly deep slushy puddles (let’s be real). So go ahead and warm your cockles with these photos of our favorite place at Christmas.
