The Holiday shopping season can get hectic pretty fast. With gifts to buy, as well as festive foods to chow down on, it can be tough to fit it all in. Luckily for BTR, we happen to be nearby a wonderful shortcut to the end of your holiday shopping craze. The outdoor markets at Union Square and Columbus Circle offer convenient shopping for people of all ages. In addition, food vendors from around the city are there to supply ample hot chocolate, delicious meatballs, or even fresh pretzels to keep you fueled and warm. So whether you are looking for a home microbrew kit or are looking for the perfect pair of knee high socks, you are sure to find something for that special someone this December.
