It’s Christmas in July, and every day of the year, at these year-round holiday shops in Midtown and in Little Italy. All are filled with ornaments and other seasonal items, including NYC ornaments, such as of the Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building, plus souvenirs.
Santa Claus is always in town at Christmas Cottage, on Seventh Ave. between 56th and 57th Streets. It’s like a visit to Santa’s Workshop, including special ornaments celebrating New York City., including the world famous Radio City Rockettes, who do their famous line dances a few blocks away.

The national chain Christmas City now has a NYC location, at 133 Mulberry Street, in the heart of Little Italy. It’s open daily, including until midnight on weekends, and features fully decorated trees plus New York scenes including Yankee Stadium. There’s also a cafe serving pastries and gelato. Downstairs, which is a kinder word than “basement”, features a walk-through attraction called Grand Santa Station
