Winter is one of the most glorious and breathtaking times to be in New York City, from the picturesque snow that falls in Central Park to the festive displays at Midtown's department stores. The season brings with it the opening of the City's ice-skating rinks and terrific options for taking in a ballet or holiday show. Shop for handmade gifts at one of the City's many holiday markets, view the nation's largest orchid exhibition at The Orchid Show at The New York Botanical Garden, experience the multicultural Lunar New Year Parade & Festival and ring in the New Year with the Times Square Ball Drop. View the full slideshow for more information on these and many other events.
