If you made a list (and checked it twice) of the 10 best Holiday movies ever made, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York must be on the list. The beloved 1992 John Hughes classic follows lost Macaulay Culkin through the streets of the holiday’s most festive city, saving a toy store from the bad guys on Christmas Eve. Could there be a more Christmas-y movie?
This movie is so much more than just a Christmas story. Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is one of the most beautiful representations of NYC on film today. The movie gloriously brings the viewer through the holiday splendor of the city; and takes place at the festive Plaza Hotel, Carnegie Hall on Christmas Eve, features Wollerman Ice Skating Rink, and concludes by standing under the Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center; the movie is a literally holiday love letter to NYC.
Believe it or not, its been 25 years since the release of the beloved movie (yes, really!). As one would imagine, the city has changed quite a bit since filming. Some of the city’s most famous landmarks – such as Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, Bethesda Fountain are highlighted, but Kevin also visited the (now closed) Fulton Fish Market, and the beautiful roof of the Twin Towers. The movie showcases over 20 city stops in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and is a nostalgic trip down New York City History.
To celebrate the movies 25th anniversary, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York 25th Anniversary Edition has been released on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD, just in time for the holidays! But movie fans can enjoy much more then just the flick, The Plaza Hotel in New York City is offering room packages that allows the guests to “Live Like Kevin” through incredible city experiences that actually mimic that of the movie. How cool is that?
Duncan’s Toy Chest comes alive at The Plaza New York!
We recently celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Home Alone 2: Lost in New York Movie with The Plaza and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Our incredible day started with a screening of the movie at the Paris Theater in the original 35mm format, followed by an after-party at The Plaza Food Hall with (gourmet!) 1990s food throwbacks! The Plaza really pulled out all the stops with plenty of photo opps and movie experiences – including one that allowed visitors to stand with none other then the Sticky Bandits.

Want to be Lost in New York too? Starting November 17th you too can have your own Kevin McCallister experience! The Plaza is offering room packages that include unique experiences straight from the movie that include a limo pizza journey through the city (how cool is that?!).
