8. Spend A Free Winter Weekday At The Brooklyn Botanic Garden
The day after the next snowfall, call in sick and instead soak up the serenity at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden—it's free to enter from noon to 4:30, Tuesday to Friday through February.
9. Feast On Holiday Treats
’Tis the season for absurdly decadent holiday desserts, like Buche de Noel from Bien Cuit, peppermint bark cake from Milk Bar.
10. Take A Ride In A Vintage Subway Car
Even the MTA is getting dressed up for the season with its Holiday Nostalgia Rides: Sundays throughout the month, you can hop aboard a vintage 1930s train for the price of a regular MetroCard swipe.
