Autumn Outings in NYC


As Furnished Quarters continues our focus on fall fun in the Northeast, we can’t forget the Big Apple. Though Hurricane Sandy affected many parts of Manhattan, the city that never sleeps can’t be stopped. There are still countless holiday events taking place across New York City that are worth packing your bags for:

Union Square Holiday Market

December 1 – December 24, Union Square, 14th to 17th Street, between Broadway and Park Avenue South

More than a hundred vendors showcase their wares at this annual outdoor market in the heart of the city.

Lord & Taylor Holiday Window Display

November 21 – December 31, Lord and Taylor, 424 Fifth Avenue, between 38th and 39th Streets

Nothing gets you in the holiday spirit faster than a glimpse into the world-famous windows of Lord & Taylor at Christmastime. This year is the 75th anniversary of these annual creative displays—the theme for 2012 features Santa on his day off.

The Nutcracker

November 23 – December 30, David H. Koch Theater (at Lincoln Center), 20 Lincoln Center Plaza at 63rd Street

The New York City Ballet performs George Balanchine’s holiday classic, The Nutcracker, featuring a one-ton Christmas tree and an unforgettable snowstorm

Ice Skating at Bryant Park

November 21 – March 3, Citi Pond at Bryant Park, Sixth Avenue, between 40th and 42nd Streets

Enjoy some free family fun at Bryant Park’s 17,000-square-foot ice skating rink (skate rental is extra but there’s no charge to use the rink if you bring your own skates). If skating isn’t your thing, you can still enjoy the rinkside restaurant or shop at the holiday vendors circling the park.

As always, remember Furnished Quarters when you’re staying in New York City. We’re the largest provider of furnished apartments in Manhattan, offering affordable luxury accommodations throughout the city and beyond. And don’t forget to ask about our Winter Specials through December 31st.
