The holidays are the best in the city. Enjoy an evening out downtown at Keste's Fulton Street location and follow it up with a stop at Pier 17 winter ice skating rink.

Keste is a delicious Neapolitan style pizza shop. The original location in the city is on Bleecker but they've recently opened up a Financial District location on Fulton. Whether you're looking for a classic simple pie or something more creative it's a great option. Try their pistacchio & Salsicca - pistachio, pesto, sausage, mozzerlla, pecorino romano, basil, and of course extra virgin olive oil. Also get their nutella zeppoles - crispy on the outside and doughy on the inside.

Now to the main event, Pier 17. The ice rink at Pier 17 is on the roof which makes for fun adventure and gives you a great view of Brooklyn and the downtown skyline. There are a ton of different activities and lessons that kids can take, everything from skate lessons, to curling, to broomball, and fitness classes. It’s a fun a way to spend a cold day in the city.
