Where to see fall foliage in NYC

Of all the things we love about fall, nothing beats the beautiful range of colors it brings.

But before you rush out of the city to get an eye-full of foliage, take note: spots all over the five boroughs will soon be ripe with crimson, yellow and orange leaves galore.

NYC’s average peak time for fall foliage is late October, Northeast Regional Climate Center climatologist Jessica Spaccio says. The best days to see colorful foliage are dry and sunny, she adds, with cool, but not freezing, nights.

The city is currently abnormally dry, Spaccio says, though not in a drought, which could lead to an earlier falling of leaves.

Here are some of the best places in NYC to take in the view this season.
