I've been to NYC in July and it was so so very hot. I've always wanted to go back in cooler weather. I love the fall, but also long to see the Christmas decorations.
My husband has been to NYC in winter on business and says I'd hate how cold it is. So, I'm wondering if there's a good in-between time to visit. Right now I'm thinking mid October or early November.
October would be great weather and the ice skating rink at Rockefeller goes up in mid October, but there won't be decorations. I don't know the date the tree goes up.
So, can someone suggest a better time to get the best of fall and Christmas? Maybe this doesn't exist. Maybe it's in November? Also, is the Halloween parade in the Village worth making sure I'm there on October 31? I love classical Halloween stuff (pumpkins, etc.) , but not so much gore and fright.
