Where To Get Your Christmas Caroling On In NYC

I was walking my chihuahua down 5th Avenue this weekend and unexpectedly came across a group of carolers.  Best treat EVER!  No lie, we stopped in our tracks, plopped on a bench and spent the next hour listening to renditions of Jingle Bells and Come All Ye Faithful.  Although the chihuahua was chilly, he enjoyed all the attention from tourists almost as much as I enjoyed the singing.



While this particular group was a bit of an improv performance, there are many opportunities for organized caroling in NYC that are not only festive, but completely free.  Here’s a few we’re really excited about:

Trinity Youth Chorus: A Ceremony of Carols – Financial District
St. Paul’s Chapel, Broadway and Fulton Street

Unsilent Night – West Village
The Arch at Washington Square Park, Fifth Avenue and Washington Square North

Caroling on the Steps – Midtown East
