Discover with us Zuccotti Park and its Christmas Lights, a hidden gem in Lower Manhattan in New York City.
This small park is little known to most tourists, but during the Christmas season it really becomes quite a surprise in New York.
In fact, its trees are all decorated with thousands of yellow lights, and there are also small Christmas markets.
In this article in our BLOG dedicated to the Christmas Season in New York, I take you on a tour of Zuccotti Park.

Let’s now explore together Zuccotti Park and how you can enjoy the most of this little park in Lower Manhattan.
Zuccotti Park is located in Lower Manhattan. Within a short distance you will find many famous landmarks. Among them I would like to mention: Wall Street (with its beautiful Christmas Tree), One World Trade Center, Brooklyn Bridge and Battery Park where the ferries to the Statue of Liberty depart.

The nearest subway stop to Zuccotti Park is Fulton Street.
You can get there by many subway lines here. Of these the most useful from a tourist point of view are the 2 and 3 that come directly from Times Square.
From the Fulton Street Subway stop to this little park in Manhattan is less than a 5-minute walk.
During the holiday season Zuccotti Park is decorated with thousands of Yellow Lights. All of its trees are illuminated. There are also about 10 little houses of Christmas Markets. In my opinion, this park, because of its beautiful Christmas lights, must be a fixture of Christmas in New York City.
If you are in Zuccotti Park during the Christmas season, I also recommend that you visit the Christmas tree located in front of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). In fact, the one on Wall Street is in my opinion one of the most beautiful Christmas trees in Manahttan. It is also much less touristy than the one at Rockefeller Center.
