Best time for a New York visit

Although New York is a popular destination throughout the year, it can experience extreme changes in seasonal weather. Winters can be very cold, while the summer months are often hot and humid. The cold winter makes December a special time to visit New York, with New Year's Eve in the city taking on legendary status. Other exciting occasions worth experiencing are Chinese New Year in February and St Patrick's Day in March. Fashion lovers will not want to miss Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, which takes place twice a year, in February and September.
