Get into the holiday spirit with a merry virtual stroll through the Big Apple! New-York Historical and the Bowery Boys present a live online experience that revisits many of New York’s iconic holiday sites—like Macy’s Herald Square, Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and Saks Fifth Avenue— and explores the city’s seasonal traditions, including Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Three Kings’ Day, and New Year’s celebration.  

Led by Bowery Boys guide Jeff Dobbins, who has written over 150 articles about NYC history and culture and created many specialized tours of New York City.
