We’re down to the last month of winter. While we’re looking forward to the promise of flowers, blooms and sunshine, the coldest time of the year is still a great time to visit and make the most of New York.
Go to a Top Museum
When the weather isn’t cooperating, hide indoors. But if you’re having a roof over your head, make it a museum. The best museums to visit in winter are The Met (Fifth Avenue), the American Museum of Natural History, the renovated Museum of Modern Art and the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. Each of these museums has various floors/levels that showcase world-renowned art, stunning scientific discoveries or engineering marvels. Good news is that there will be fewer crowds, so take your time.
Make a NYC in Winter Bucket List
Some of the city’s top attractions like Rockefeller Center have more to offer than lavish Christmas decorations. Book tickets to skate on The Rink (open through early April) or brave the outdoor deck at Top of the Rock. If you’re a fan of winter sports, catch a New York Rangers game in Madison Square Garden.

Bundle Up and Head to Central Park
Located a mere three-block walk from The Manhattan Club, Central Park is one of the wonders of New York. This year-round attraction has everything to keep people of all ages and tastes busy: endless paths, beautiful bridges, winter and summer sports, and regular events. If you’re visiting after a snowfall, you’re in luck! Central Park has some of the most stunning winter landscapes in New York.
Warm up with a Cup of Joe
If the cold has chilled you to the bone, head back to The Manhattan Club for a warm shower. On your way, why not grab a warm drink? No, we’re not talking about sugar-packed coffee from worldwide chains. We’re talking about good, old-fashioned and independent locales. Try a foamy latte, a creamy espresso or a fragrant loose leaf tea and any of these coffee shops near The Manhattan Club.
Tuck into an Hearty Meal
Once you’ve warmed up, we suggest taking off again and going for dinner. The Manhattan Club’s prime location means we’re within walking distance of everything worth visiting, including New York’s international dining scene. We have put together a guide to our favorite international restaurants, each of them ideal for different occasions.
