As the leaves turn red and we officially enter the fall season, I’ve been thinking a lot about New York City. This time last year I moved up to the big city for an internship, and I’ve got to say…New York City is magical in the fall. Street festivals, colorful leaves in Central Park, and hot tea from Alice’s Tea Cup are just a few things that made me fall for NYC.
So let’s dive into the best things to do in the fall in NYC:
- Feast of San Gennaro
This annual festival happens in Little Italy and spans 10 days (check this website for the official dates). Aside from the amazing (and I mean AH-mazing) italian food, there are games, live music, and carnival rides.
- Columbus Avenue Festival
I lived on the Upper West Side, and the Columbus Ave Festival was one of my favorite street markets. There are lots of crafts and knick knacks that can be purchased, plus it runs in to the weekly flea market.
- Long Walks in Central Park
Early in the morning or after a long day of work…Central Park is a good any time of day. I loved grabbing a Starbucks chai tea and getting lost on the different paths in the park.
- Visit Alice’s Tea Cup
Since I’m not a coffee drinker, I love finding a good tea shop. Alice’s Tea Cup is an awesome little tea shop located in the Upper West Side. Although you’ll have to fight little girls in frilly dresses for a table, to-go cups are always available 😉 I recommend the chocolate chai tea.
