The first week of December is when New York’s holiday spirit is released. Tree lighting ceremonies take place and holiday window displays are revealed. Walking around Fifth Avenue, the heart of Midtown’s shopping center, at this time of year offers unique photo opportunities. These are the holiday displays you cannot miss!

After spending a few hours walking around Midtown photographing the window displays or posing in front of the Rockefeller Tree, you might need to warm up a bit. Why not head back to our neck of the woods and have a drink at Royalton Park Avenue’s rooftop? Stop by for Happy Hour, Monday through Friday from 4pm to 7pm.
If you want to explore beyond our boutique hotel, check out our favorite rooftop bars in Manhattan that continue operating throughout winter. On the coldest of days, head to bars serving hot cocktails and delicious winter drinks.
