Thanksgiving in NYC

Your guide to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, surviving Black Friday sales and things to do this Thanksgiving in NYC

Thanksgiving in NYC is tough, pilgrim. It's even tougher when you're ill-prepared. If you're staying in New York, there are plenty of ways to celebrate not being stuck in traffic or sitting on a runway. Gather some friends for dinner with a variety of dishes and the city's best desserts, make a reservation at one of the best restaurants in NYC, head to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade or dance off all that turkey at one of our recommended best parties. With everyone visiting relatives or in a tryptophan coma, the city is yours to enjoy.
