The holiday season will soon be upon us and NYC is ready! Although the tree at Lincoln Center isn't lit, museums get their exhibits ready for visitors to the Big Apple early on to give travelers optimal time to plan their time in the city. MOMA has the record-setting attendance already with Picasso's sculpture. Timed tickets are required but this is not a show to miss. Head downtown to the new Whitney Museum of Art to catch the Frank Stella retrospective. Go early or go late as the new Whitney is attracting record crowds as well. The Metropolitan Museum of Art will have the beautiful Christmas tree and creche up...always a holiday delight. The Jewish Museum is open Christmas Day and serves hot chocolate for those waiting in line to get in. Get tickets ahead of time and keep in mind that crowds will abound. All in all a great time to visit the city that never sleeps.
