Winter provides temperatures ranging from 10-40 degrees
Fahrenheit, but it's usually between 25-35 degrees. It can feel very cold when the wind chill kicks in. It is an ideal time to enjoy ice skating, Christmas fun, Broadway shows, and, of course, endless tourist attractions!

Winter, with the exception of Christmas, is the cheapest time of year to visit. You’ll find cheaper flights and less costly hotel rooms especially after January 2! But with today’s economy, my blog has reported amazing hotel deals during all December! Be sure to subscribe to my blog so you don't miss ANY important deals.

Spring is one of the most glorious times to visit with temperatures ranging between 50-80 degrees. Temperatures have been known to soar to 90 degrees in June. It’s a time of low humidity and rediscovering the outdoors. A visit to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island via the ferry, any one of the 4 gorgeous botanical gardens, the world renown aquariums, our famous zoos, or a delightful gourmet meal!

The fall is a wonderful time to visit. New York City weather temperature range from 70-80 degrees in early Fall and thereafter can range from 50-79 degrees. Some Halloweens have been known to be quite chilly, as low as the 40s. Why not consider a great shopping expedition during your visit, a host of Thanksgiving fun including the famous Macy’s Parade, or be part of a FREE television studio audience at one of the many television shows that are filmed here.

The Summer is one of the most popular times to visit! New York City weather temperatures range from 70-95. It can be hot and humid. Many New Yorkers head out-of-town during the summer, especially on weekends, so it’s a great time to snag coveted restaurant reservations! Also, consider unlimited outdoor music, dance and theater events, super walking tours, a ride on the Circle Line or Beast Boat, Broadway shows, a day at the Intrepid Museum and a host of other awesome activities.
