Certainly, New York is magical during the holiday season. But a trip to the Big Apple during the quieter months of January and February has many advantages.
With some rinks still open, the decorations still there and the snow, the magic is still happening.
The queues have disappeared and several good deals, both for shows and accommodation, are then put forward.
Beyond the classics and outdoor winter activities, this is also a great opportunity to discover the brand new museums that have swarmed over the past few months.
Surprisingly, the city known worldwide for its musicals still did not have a museum dedicated to them. That's it, with the Broadway museum which opened its doors in Times Squares in November. He devotes himself as much to the history of Broadway, its theaters and the transitions that the district has known, from Lower Manhattan to Midtown, as well as to the creation and production of musicals. More than 500 productions are reviewed with a focus on key works such as The Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King, Hair and Rent.
A first-ever permanent center for custom-designed immersive art experiences has moved into a beautiful former Manhattan bank. You can admire the exhibition Gustav Klimt: Gold in Motion, which is a journey through the golden and revolutionary art of the Viennese painter.
Having opened last fall, a dozen years later than planned, this museum dedicated to the baseball legend examines his sports career, but also his obligations related to his military career and his contribution to the movement of civil rights. The Soho Museum features a collection of 4,500 artifacts, 40,000 images and 450 hours of video footage.
On February 17, the legendary American Museum of Natural History will open a new wing. Magnificent and curvaceous, evoking the organic architecture of Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi, the building will be dedicated to science, education and innovation. The new center will enhance the museum's current offer with an insectarium, a vivarium with more than 80 species of butterflies and an immersive experience, Invisible Worlds, which will explore the different life processes from the inner workings of the brain to the depths of the oceans.
