Visiting the Big Apple can be expensive, but get your timing right and you can save.

New York in winter. There's no doubt it's chilly, but it offers experiences the warmer high season does not: a winter wonderland with lower prices and shorter queues.

Visitors heading to the Big Apple in January and February will be greeted with deals on dining, attractions and theatre tickets, along with the lowest hotel rates of the year.

“Winter is one of the most attractive and value-oriented times of the year to visit New York City, with unique and magical experiences across all five boroughs,” says Fred Dixon, chief executive of the city's official destination marketing organisation NYC & Company.

The organisation has released its recommendations by borough for both indoor and outdoor activities, as well as some freebie tips, for a wintertime visit. 

NYC & Company's new Nonstop NYC campaign has offers on theatre, restaurants and attractions. Included are popular programs NYC Broadway Week (January 17 to February 5), NYC Restaurant Week (January 23 to February 10), NYC Off-Broadway Week (February 27 to March 12), and the first-ever NYC Attractions Week (January 17 to February 5), with two-for-one tickets to more than 70 attractions.
