Celebrating the Holiday Season in NYC

December 3, 2019

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and there’s no place better than New York during the holidays! Even though the holidays are still a few weeks away, the greater Roosevelt Island area is gearing up for the holiday festivities. Check out the events below that are taking place near The Octagon.

New York Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show- The Holiday train Show at the new York Botanical Garden returns once again to celebrate the magic of new york city during the holidays. Mesmerizing train models zip through displays of over 150 New York landmarks built to scale, all recreated with bark, leaves, and other natural materials from the Garden itself. You don’t have to be a child to enjoy this special event, which runs until Sunday, January 26th 2020.

Bryant Park Winter Village – Even seasoned New Yorker’s can’t resist the Bryant Park Winter Village during the holiday season. Stop by the park to browse over 125 different holiday shops where you can pick up unique gifts for friends and loved ones. Visit Celsius restaurant for a bite to eat or hot chocolate before making your way to the ice skating rink. To beat the touristy rush, try to stop by during a weekday during off-hours.

Dyker Heights Christmas Lights – This holiday season you won’t want to miss the incredible Christmas Lights display of Dyker Heights! Head into Dyker Heights in Brooklyn from 11th to 13th Avenues from 83rd to 86th to see the festive Christmas light displays. To see the lights in full display, it’s best to head over between dusk and 9pm. Make your trip before New Year’s Eve, as many of the home owners and professional decorators remove their displays in the new year!
