Christmas on the Upper East Side

Christmas decoration on the Upper East Side, New York

If you are looking for a safe outdoor and less crowded Christmas activity you got to the right place. I will show you some of the most festive spots during Christmas on the Upper East Side that you can visit. 

While most tourists wander around Rockefeller Center and check out other popular attractions nearby I highly recommend spending some time around Upper East Side. This part of Manhattan is a great alternative to admire beautiful holiday decorations at you own pace. Just walk the streets from 60s to 80s and you will easily stumble into most of them. I intentionally did not list the exact locations so you can wander around the streets and discover even more amazingly decorated brownstones. Additionally the area is full of nice restaurants, cafes, shops, galleries and museums. Just grab hot chocolate, check out the latest fashion street trends and look for the holiday spirit. Take your time and indulge into Christmas atmosphere.
