Hey all, I'm new to this website but hope it will help me with my Christmas nightmare.
I am flying out to spend Christmas inm New York and unforatunatly will now be doing so alone. I was wondering if anyone else would be around there at this time and had some free time to meet up?
Hi Em!! Sorry to hear about your situation. I live in nYC and will def be here for the holidays. let me know if u wanna meet up.
Although I'll be working right up until the 23rd (late), I am in town between Christmas and New Years' and would be happy to try to meet up. I moved here three years ago, and spent my first Christmas alone, so I know that daunting feeling. But this city is truly magical during the holidays - the air is electric! One of my new traditions is to start with cocktails at Bemelman's on Christmas Eve (early enough to get a table...). Fantastic (and charming) pianist with a great voice, singing classic New York standards. And everyone is in the holiday spirit - you'll find me there around 5:00!
Funnily enough, I have found myself in the same situation! I will be in NY from 21st – 27th December. I ended up booking tickets to the NBA on Christmas Day (a) because I think it would be a great experience and (b) to distract myself from being alone at Christmas. However this only goes until mid afternoon. I’m an aussie girl who lives in London. I was mean’t to be meeting friends in NY but their plans fell through but I’ve decided to come anyway! Let me know if you want to meet up at all whilst you’re there!
I'm in a similar situation too. I'll be in NY between 22th and 29th, on December. I'm a resident doctor from Brazil and I have been doing a research intenship at a hospital close to Toronto, Canada. Since my back flight is just on Dec 30th I'll spend my remaining days at NY, at a hostel that offers a lot of daily excursions during this period. So, let me know if you (and all the others who wrote here) want to meet!
I've found myself in the same situation! I was due to travel with my brother but his visa wasnt granted and he's not able to come with now and after a week of deliberation i've decided to go ahead with my trip. I'll be in New York from 24th Dec to 2nd Jan.
I'm South African but have adopted London as my home for the last 7 years.
Would love some company, im not really looking forward to Christmas alone.
Let me know if you will still be around and are free.
My Christmas Eve plans were just cancelled and I would love to join you all on the 24th. I really do not look forward to being alone for Christmas. I live in NY (hence NYer) but most of my friends are travelling or have plans already. It's great so many interesting and well travelled people answered. The more the merrier Christmas....
Hey just found this site as well! I too will be spending Christmas day alone in NYC. I will have 0 to do. Just moved to the city and can't get back home for Christmas due to my work schedule. So if anyone would like to chit chat about maybe doing something fun. Grabbing a drink something like that let me know!
Oh wow, Im so excited!!
The weather here in the UK is not good and Heathrow are cancelling most of their flights...the news has advised travellers to cancel trips if they have them to try and get a refund....I'm hoping that my Ex won't choose to do this so I will keep you all posted on my plans...
I can't thank you enough for responding and I Love love love the sound of meeting up in the Bar Lainie...!
I will keep you all informed and if nothing else I will login ASAP and we can all sort out meeting up and making this christmas one of the best
What plans have you all made, if any so far?
I'm already in NYC and going to be alone for Christmas and New Years Eve - or hopefully not, if you don't let me
I would love to meet you all, for christmas and new years eve.
No plans so far.
All the best and Merry Christmas!
