I’m not sure if there truly is a more lovely time to visit New York City than in the fall. It’s still warm outside but not blistering hot, the crowds are noticeably fewer but the energy that only exists in NYC is still vibrant and pulsing, and traveling in and around the city is also more affordable after its peak summer season.
