Fall is coming. Which is the way better version of ‘winter is coming,’ because it is still filled with a lot of fun new things to do.
When the summer starts to fade, fashions begin to change and it is time for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. All of the world’s top designers gather in one city to showcase their latest creations. It’s all fashion, party and press for the week of September 10-17th. Manhattan will be covered in models, designers and fashion aficionados trying to catch the haute new trends.
Fall Leaves in Central Park
There are a few true signs of fall in New York City. One of the most beautiful is the change in color of the leaves. Whilst around city trees are changing their palettes, it can be best seen in the one and only Central Park. Fall is the perfect time to take advantage of the park. Whether it’s for a light stroll, morning run or romantic picnic, there is nothing quite like this New York icon in the fall.
New Yorkers are some of the proudest people in the world. They love their city, and even more so their sports teams. Fall means sports season is back in session and fans are ready to rumble. You can still catch a Yankees or Mets baseball game, watch the Giants and Jets in the middle of their football seasons, see the Knicks and Nets get it started on the basketball court or get rowdy with the Rangers in the hockey arena. There are endless options for ways and places to get involved in the New York sports scene. Whether you actually get to attend a game or not, there are local bars scattered around the city waiting for you to come join the cheer.
One of the most famous fall activities in the city is the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The parade is in its 89th year and is seen by more than 3.5 million people in New York and 50 million people at home. All eyes are on the giant balloons, one-of-a-kind floats and amazing performances. The annual Thanksgiving tradition has now attracted celebrities and artists alike. For what started as a small group of Macy’s employees to today having over 8,000 volunteers just demonstrates the power of this parade.
Since the Hamptons is not really fall appropriate, it’s time to take your talents to the ski slopes. At the end of Fall season starts and people flea for some après-ski. There are so many haute places to go. The top spots that New Yorkers frequent are Colorado and Canada. You can find city socialites on the slopes at the nicest resorts in Whistler and Aspen. Make sure this fall you plan a much needed trip away to some fresh white snow.
