awsome! I love studying and learning about New York. Some day I plan on traveling to New York, so when I do go I will know all the places I want to go, and know something about it. I will also know things to do and attend diffent times of the year. If I go in the summer, I'll know what I want to do and where I want to go. If I go in the winter I'll know what I'll do, so this web page is so helpfull. Thank you.
I checked out Park Here (#1 on the list) over the weekend and it di not meet expectations at all. I am disappointed at the list after that. If that is the number one thing to do in NY over the winter, I cannot imagine what the other things are like.
Great list of stuff to do and see! NYC is by far one of the greatest places for finding anything to do, any season of the year.
