TIME TO VISIT
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
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

sell your number and run up your bill.

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
