I think I must say Fall is my favorite time of the year. I am not a fan of extreme heat and humidity, I just love the whole theme of Fall. New York City can be very hot in the summer months. I would tell any tourist that the best time to visit would be September and October. I am a huge lover of all the flavors of Fall as well, pumpkin anything makes me happy! I thought it would be nice to give you an idea of some of the best Fall activities in New York City. There are lots of great choices, for just about everyone.
