NYC weather is very changeable with moderate precipitation all over the year, and some heat waves in summer and very cool weather in winter and even in the early spring. Snow is obviously concentrated in winter months, but not precipitation.

If we only consider the weather issue, then the best time to visit New York is undoubtedly spring - April, May, June – or late-summer and early-fall – September, October, when Central Park becomes magical. There are, of course, other issues when equating a visit to NYC. And so it all depends on what you value most. For some people there is nothing like Christmas time to experience Times Square, the Rockefeller Center, and the city’s shopping ambiance.


With actual crime rates well below other major American cities, NYC image is better.  Although most NYC crime takes place in neighborhoods many tourists never visit, there's always the threat of danger wherever you are. Here are some street smart tips on safety in The Big Apple that'll leave you with the confidence and ability to take on the big city for yourself.

 When arranging transportation, do not accept any invitation from someone to drive you to your destination.
When you use a telephone calling card, be very discreet when punching in your numbers. Airports are filled with professionals just looking to sell your number and run up your bill.

Often, especially in the outer boroughs, unmarked cars are looking for passengers like you. New Yorkers refer to these as "Gypsy Cabs." If one ever approaches you, don't accept. Even if it does not mean danger in the sense of crime, they are usually non-insured, non-metered and definitely non-licensed.

Keep your valuables in the hotel's safe or the safe in your room.

Hallways have public access, an unexpected knock at the door could mean trouble. Don't be embarrassed to call the lobby and check. Remember, a maid can open the door herself.

To combat pickpockets and purse snatchers, men should try to keep their wallets in their front pockets while ladies should always wear their purses across their shoulder -an easy tip that makes a criminal move on to an easier target.
If you get lost and need directions or help, remember, New Yorkers are in general friendlier than you think! Don't be afraid to ask them.

Arrange for meeting places if you are with a few people. Crowded streets like Fifth Avenue can easily split you up. Notable spots like the fountain in Bryant Park on Sixth Ave. and 42nd St. or the Arch in Washington Square Park make excellent meeting places.

Stay on the curb until the light changes.

Don't cross in the middle of the block.

Look out for cars making turns even when you have the right of way.

Look like you know where you're going - a confident walker is a safe walker.
