What to pack for October?


Me an my partner are traveling to NYC from 8th to 13th October. Can anybody advise me on what the weather is like and what to pack clothes wise? Thanks

Chilly weather is possible, but truly cold weather is unlikely. Mild to moderately warm weather is also possible, where you might need only a light shirt during the afternoon. Truly hot weather is unlikely. Rain is always a possibility.

Pack good walking shoes, socks, lighter weight shirts with both light and heavier layers to wear over. A light weight jacket wouldn't be a bad idea but not absolutely essential if you'd prefer sweaters (or what you might call cardigans or pullovers).

Beyond that, what to pack for clothes will depend on what you want to do and where you want to go (e.g. nicer restaurants, trendy bars, etc). Just know that you don't need hot weather clothes or sandals and you don't need truly cold weather clothes or boots. Probably pack what you'd wear for autumn in Liverpool.

We say pack clothes for the actual weather, and here is a link that will provide the best "guess't'imates":


Access the link a day or two before you arrive and you will have a pretty good idea of what to pack.

A lightly lined black knee length trench would work. Bring a sweater that you can wear under this at night if you need it. Pants and closed toed shoes. NYC is a damp island.
