Now that there's been some snow the kids--and even some adults--will be eager to find the perfect place to sled. And you can find many places in the city to do so. The biggest and most famous sledding hill in NYC is Pilgrim Hill in Central Park, located at 72nd St on the East Side. If it gets too crowded there, head over to Cedar Hill on the East Side from 76th-79th Streets for a smaller slope. For more great sledding spots in Manhattan and the other boroughs, visit here.

Hot cocoa

Hot chocolate and cold weather go together like peanut butter and jelly. When it's cold in New York, you'll want to know where to get a good cup of hot cocoa. There's so many to choose from, but here are some of the best:

MarieBelle (484 Broome St, SoHo) - try the pudding-thick Aztec hot chocolate made with either milk or water.

The City Bakery (3 W 18th St, Union Square) - for some creative and different flavors of hot chocolate in February during their hot chocolate festival.

Max Brenner (841 Broadway, Union Square) - You can order hot cocoa here in milk, dark, or white chocolate varieties. They also have a selection of adult beverages for those 21 and over.

Cocoa Bar (21 Clinton St, Lower East Side) - Here you can get mint, cinnamon, and other spice-infused hot chocolates.

Wherever you decide to go, enjoy and stay warm!
