A: New York City delivers excitement, culture, and fun during all of its four distinct seasons, each with different activities to explore. Overall, the best time to visit New York City is from April through June and from September through early November, when the weather is mild and pleasant, but the tourist crowds are not overwhelming.
Autumn in NYC, especially in Central Park, is breathtaking as the leaves change color; Spring offers Manhattan in full bloom, and is a perfect time of year for sightseeing, especially on foot; Winter brings holiday shopping, sparkling store windows at our world-famous department stores, and, of course, the legendary Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center—conveniently located around the corner from The Hotel at Times Square!
A: Apple Core's two boutique hotels are right in the heart of Manhattan's most vibrant neighborhoods. Stay within steps of Times Square, Broadway Theaters, Madison Square Garden, the Fashion District, SoHo, and the Javits Convention Center. Explore iconic landmarks like the Empire State Building and 9/11 Memorial, go shopping along Fifth Avenue, or take the ferry across the Hudson River to the Statue of Liberty.
For those looking to experience the city's storied arts and culture scene, MoMA, The Met, and Museum of Natural History are an easy walk or short cab ride away. If you're traveling with kids, head to the Zoo at Central Park when it's warm out, or glide around the ice rink at Rockefeller Center when the city becomes a winter wonderland in the colder months.
