City Glitter

From New York City to Buffalo streets glitter in winter’s delight. Go ahead, take in the lights, the sounds, the thrills that inspire masterpieces like Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.”

In New York City, your biggest challenge will be deciding where to begin. Why not start at the heart in the newly revitalized 42nd Street. Check out the new shops, themed-restaurants and, of course, a Broadway show! Don’t miss the legendary Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall or the enormous F.A.O. Schwarz toy store—both classic destinations. Wish upon the stars in the Museum of Natural History’s Planetarium or from the observatory at the Empire State Building. And treat your mind to one of the countless world-renowned museums—several participating in a state-wide exhibit of New York artists from the Hudson River School and the Abstract Expressionists of the New York School.

Explore Long Island's maritime museums in West Sayville and Cold Spring Harbor (which also has a DNA Learning Center). The Gates of Paradise in Hicksville allows a view of a full-scale replica of the 14th Century Ghiberti doors. Learners of all ages will enjoy the Long Island Children’s Museum in Garden City and the African American Museum in Hempstead. Peconic, on the island’s North Fork, boasts several wineries with beautiful surroundings, tastings and tours all through the winter.

Head north to create another perfect winter day. Start in the Hudson Valley, where you can view breathtaking artworks at the Francis Lehman Loeb Art Center in Poughkeepsie. Washingtonville is home to ‘America’s Oldest Winery’, Brotherhood Winery, which was established in 1839 and houses its collection of award-winning wines in the largest underground cellar in the country. In nearby Marlboro the Benmarl Vineyards & Museum, share tastes of their award winning wines as well as an art gallery holding the works of ‘America’s Romance Artist’, Mark Miller and the Museum for Preservation of Illustrative Art. After a show at the Ulster Performing Arts Center choose one of the valley’s many fine restaurants to complete your dream day.

In Albany visit the New York State Museum which displays some of the regions finest art collections as well as historical treasures. The Albany Institute of History & Art, one of the regions finest museums, has reopened after a fabulous renovation. And the Capital Reparatory Theater continues to pack the house for its superb performances.

Schenectady’s majestic Proctor’s Theater draws top entertainers from around the world. Across the Hudson River in Troy, the impressive Arts Center of the Capital Region, built in the heart of the art revival district on River Street, features artwork from a wide range of the area’s talent as well as stage productions by the Actor’s Collaborative. A few blocks away, spark up your night with a show by The New York State Theater Institute, housed at Russell Sage College.

Let your traveling shoes take you west to the Central-Leatherstocking region known for its soothing landscape and ease. Tour the region’s museums like the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown or the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute in Utica.

Several prize-winning wineries host tastings, tours and winter diversions throughout the Finger Lakes. Let your eyes be dazzled at the Corning Museum of Glass then head up to Syracuse for the Lights on the Lake festival. In Rochester, be sure to experience the collection of photography at the George Eastman House. In the Greater Niagara region, tour one of America’s premier art collections at the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo.

No matter what the weather, what the mood, when you’re in New York you’re in luck. There’s always something special—it’s a rhapsody for you!
