November good time to visit?

I have done a quick check of several hotels in NYC for October, 2012 and they are already booked. Would the first part of November also be a good time to visit the City? We would prefer not to go too far into the Fall/Winter season and chance weather problems. Is early November still relatively nice weather for a visit? When does the snow "normally" start in the area?

Snow is not a worry in November. It is a nice time to visit. Just remember the word Layering and you will be fine.

Hola.

Early Novembers in NYC can be quite pleasant. We generally do not put our City garden “to bed” until around Thanksgiving because many of our flowering plants (even the fragile stuff like impatiens) are still in bloom and have not been much affected by the frosty temperatures at night. That said, we have no crystal ball…..

Hope this helps. Your questions are always welcome.

Abrazos,

Matt

Most hotels don't allow bookings a year in advance online so what you're seeing as booked for Oct. of next year is likely just not yet available. Early Nov. tends to be a very pricey time for hotels. The city gets filled for Halloween (Oct. 31) and then the NYC Marathon is always the first Sunday of Nov. which fills hotels and drives up prices. Bottom line, it's too early to see prices for next year. Both Oct. and Nov. are typically good weather but pricey.

We have travelled to New York the past two years in November, and this year will be our third, and we love it! The weather is perfect for wondering around. Make sure you bring a toque and some mittens because the wind can be crisp, but overall it's a beautiful time of year in New York!

Snow usually does not start before December or late November. Early November is a great time to go to NYC. There's a lot going on. If you get there at the very end of October, you will experience the Halloween tradition! It is also when the ING NYC Marathon is happening and the Veteran Day Parade.
