When I went to New York my brother went with me and he insisted that it wasn't a complete trip unless you rode the subway! It wasn't that bad but, you can see some interesting stuff down there. It's not very Christmassy but hey, it's something New York-y to do. Empire State building too. Although when I went I didn't get to go to the top because of the 1 1/2 hour wait to do so.
