NYC Spirit in January and February

The New Year is around the corner so the time is right to start planning your trip (and hopefully multiple trips) to New York City in January and February.

Consider a stay with us during the long weekend for the Martin Luther King Day holiday (Jan. 19). Take advantage of a traditionally quieter time in the city – once the holiday hoopla has passed, lesser crowds ensure but the vibrancy and attractions in the boroughs continue to thrill city-goers.

A treat for boating and fishing enthusiasts is the New York Boat Show at the Jacob Javits Convention Center Jan. 21-25. Discover the latest and greatest in what’s making its way to the water – from stylish yachts and cruisers to canoes, kayaks, bass and pontoon boats, and personal watercraft.

February ushers in Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) and President’s Day (Feb. 16), and the way the holidays fall in 2015 creates a great opportunity for a New York City weekend getaway. Whether a romantic Saturday overnight with that special someone or a fun-filled few days away with good friends, we welcome the occasion to be your host!

For a celebration of man’s (and woman’s) “best friend,” head to the Westminster Kennel Club’s annual Dog Show, which takes place Feb. 16-17. Over the course of two days, dogs will be judged, and the prestigious “Best in Show” distinction will be bestowed.

Experience Chinese New Year in Chinatown and generate indelible memories! The year of the goat kicks off on Feb. 19 so you can engage in the festive spirit and amazing food in Chinatown’s endless array of restaurants. A highlight is the Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade & Festival – on Feb. 22 at 1 pm – where colorful floats, marching bands, dancers and performers take to the streets.

Fashion trends come alive on New York runways so stay tuned for what emerges during New York Fashion Week Live Feb. 12-19.

Before signing off in 2014, we’d like to wish you a Happy New Year 2015, and may all good things come your way now and in the future.
