This #MagicMoment

Chapter 4: Discover

What do we love about this time of year? The flicker of lights. The unexpected delights. Parties that linger long after midnight. So we’re celebrating with a series of love letters to the season.

In this chapter, we take you on a guided tour of our favorite (and, we think, the most magical) places in New York City during the holidays. From undiscovered gems to new ways of seeing familiar sights, there’s inspiration aplenty.

Rockefeller Center in Solitude
New York, NY

There’s something extremely special about viewing a holiday icon in solitude—like it’s all lit up just for you. I love going at 2am to see the trees and the holiday windows on 5th Avenue. Make sure to Postmates some pierogis from Veselka and lattes from French Roast since both are open 24 hours. –Dee Grossmann, Senior Graphic Designer
