New York is really a city of extremes. We'll be sailing along merrily in summer one moment, then plunge into brisk Fall weather, the next. Brrr!
Gone are the flip flops, replaced by sensible shoes and trench coats. Some women are already donning their boots. Temperatures range from the high 60s during the day to low 50s at night.
A friend was bemoaning how drastically the city changes during the colder months. In the summer, the streets are lively with activity. There are outdoor concerts and street fairs.
In the Fall and Winter, darkness descends early. New York has a northeast mentality of holing up in hibernation. Bars and restaurants are good places to convene.
