I will be there for a few days after Christmas and I was wondering if there are any places I should visit. I have been there before but never during the winter.

I like art, galleries and museums (MOMA is on my list). I also want to visit some universities.
I like thirft stores or antique stores- Any suggestions? Any other types of shops you reccomend? I also plan on visiting Mood.
I've heard there are some good markets around during this time. I would like to visit some of those- do you know of any?
