Christmas in New York City: A Photo Journal

This was the first year that I’ve been to New York City at Christmastime. Rather than recounting every detail, I’ll share the highlights and let the photos speak for themselves.

Running in Central Park

I went to Central Park years ago on my first visit to NYC; however, I didn’t research it in advance and ended up seeing a boring corner of it before giving up. This time around, I made it my mission to see the entire park by running! There’s a loop around the park that spans over 6 miles. I’m glad I wasn’t the only fool out there on Christmas Eve running in the rain!

Brooklyn Bridge

Rachel used the fancy portrait mode on her phone for my pictures. The one of her that I took with my phone turned out good as well.

Rockefeller Plaza

I’ve been to the top of the Empire State Building previously and read on another blog that the views from the Rockefeller Tower are much better (and the admission is cheaper). Rockefeller Plaza is where they put the big tree and I was surprised to learn that it’s real. The views from the top were definitely way better than the Empire State Building.


I’ll sum up the rest of the trip with a concise list:

  • Disappointing play at the Hulu Theater
  • Used the subway for the first time and had fun getting lost
  • A few introvert hangovers
  • Good food (mostly)!

  1. Woohoo. This is fantastic 🙌

    Glad you both got to spend some time away & from the looks of your smiles I gather you both enjoyed 😁
    Love the pictures, they came out great & are the best for making memories.

    I went to New York with my mum to see some family when I was 5, went on top of the Towers (a year before the tragic attack 😞)

    Climbed the Statue Of Liberty + more… I still have my top that says, ‘ I survived the New York Sky Ride’ a little faded but meh, haha

    Loved seeing these pics.

    P.S running in the rain instead of relaxing at home with a hot beverage… I expect nothing else from you 😂👊💚
