Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
’Twas the night before Christmas and all through Gotham, New Yorkers were actually stirring. That’s right, there are still plenty of things to do on Christmas Eve in NYC. Don’t just laze around your apartment watching Christmas movies (as fun as that sounds). Instead, check out one of the many restaurants serving Christmas dinner or do some last-minute shopping at holiday markets in NYC that remain open on Christmas Eve. Pro tip: Haggle like you mean it; most are closing up shop for the season and it is the season of giving, isn’t it?
