10 Best Fall Activities in New York City 2017


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. In no particular order, here is your list :

Fall Foliage - which is great in Central Park or on a sightseeing cruise to experience in the Hudson Valley.

Columbus Day Parade  - October 9, 2017 - The parade honors Italian-Americans' contributions to New York City and draws around million spectators and 35,000 marchers. The parade travels from 44th Street to 72nd Street and marching bands will perform along its length, and there's also a "red carpet" area between 67th and 69th Streets for stage acts—special passes are needed to get up close.

Fest of San Gennaro - The 91st Annual Feast of San Gennaro will be held in Little Italy for 11 days from September 14, through September 24, 2017, on the streets of historic Little Italy, the lower Manhattan neighborhood which served as the first home in America for hundreds of thousands of Italian immigrants who came here seeking to improve their lives beginning in the early part of the 20th century.

Halloween - Fabulous parade in Greenwich Village as well as amazing decorations displayed in the Upper East Side and throughout the city

NY Comic Con - takes place in Javits Center October 5 - 8, 2017

OHNY Weekend, which is becoming a New York City tradition, engages the public in the built environment by offering free access to hundreds of sites that exemplify New York City's diverse architectural, design, engineering, and cultural heritage.

NYC Biking Tours - you can google NYC biking tours to see other companies as well

NY Fashion Week - to be held September 4 to 14, 2017 showing Spring 2018 collections - people watching near the shows is a great pastime if you cannot get a ticket inside!

The cast of Chopped is kicking off the festival with a rooftop Smorgasburg event on Thursday, Oct. 12, while the Blue Moon Burger Bash, a longtime favorite event hosted by Rachael Ray, will take place on Friday night atop a Midtown Manhattan rooftop as well. On the weekend, it’s all about wake-up-worthy brunches, back-to-back Grand Tastings, featuring demos from chefs like Anne Burrell and Alex Guarnaschelli, and late-night soirees under the stars.
