November in New York City

by Naomi Young

As the holiday season fast approaches, a visit to New York City in November can be quite lovely. This is the time of the year when the foliage in city parks and woods, such as in
Central Park, peaks and nothing beats the breathtaking beauty of this fall spectacle. This is also a very busy time for city, in terms of sporting events, parades and festivities.

On the first Sunday of the month, the New York City Marathon takes place with literally thousands of participants and spectators enjoying the day. On the fourth Sunday of November, the much-awaited Thanksgiving Day Parade officially welcomes in the holiday season. Other exciting festivities include the New York Culinary Festival and the New York Comedy Festival, as well as the Rockefeller Tree Lighting. Because of all these events and the approaching holiday season, visitors need to take into account that prices for accommodation and flights are likely to be higher than usual. It is important to note that November 11, Veteran’s Day, is a federal holiday and many services will not run on that day.

This is the time that the winter season can be felt in the air, and it safe to say that the weather will be chilly overall. Average highs are around 54 degrees Fahrenheit (12 degrees Celsius) and average lows hit a frosty 41 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius). The days, however, are still warm and can be used to enjoy popular New York walking tours and other site seeing trips. Visitors should pack comfortable, waterproof walking shoes for this very reason. While it does not snow in New York during November, visitors are still encouraged to pack warm, windproof jackets and sweaters, as the nights can be cold and late November may even call for hats and gloves. November is a lovely month to visit New York City!
