A Brief Guide To Fall In NYC
The briefest and best season!
Fall is the best time of the year in New York City.
Unfortunately fall is also the shortest of all the seasons.
The truth is it feels short because of the extreme weather changes.
Indeed, if you look closely at fall, you'll see it's just summer and winter alternating.
What makes fall in New York unique is you'll feel the drastic weather changes because you'll be powerwalking through it.
For instance, you'll be wading through this in the morning.
And then on the way home you'll tiptoe through this.
Essentially you need to leave the house ready for six different climates in the same day.
This is particularly true because of the shady wind tunnels created by the cityscape.
That said, here are three keys to making the most of this short season.
2) Get up early to enjoy the fleeting sunshine (because you won't see it on your commute home.)
3. Take the scenic route through the parks as often as you possibly can.
Before all the leaves are gone and the parks look like this, check out the New York state foliage map here.
Whatever you do, enjoy these days while you can.
