After having revealed to you WHEN the HOLIDAY SEASON OFFICIALLY BEGINS in NYC (if you haven’t already done so, we suggest you read our article by clicking HERE) it’s time to start going into a little more detail about the main Holiday Seasons Events in NYC and among these we must absolutely mention the fantastic Lights and Sounds Show at Saks 5th Avenue.
Saks 5th avenue, as the name implies, is located on the 5th Avenue, just a few steps from St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Rockefeller Center. The location is really central and is easily accessible both on foot and by subway.
