New York Public Holidays

Unlike most other countries the United States has virtually no public holidays on which all employees in the country receive a day off of work and all business is halted. Each state may have different state holidays but all observe the annual federal holidays, however, they may alter the dates of observance or add or subtract holidays according to local custom. In Manhattan there is no day that everything is closed there are always supermarkets pharmacys and most likley a few cafes and resturants open even on federal holidays which usually see only banks and other financial institutions closed
