America's Best Cities for Fall Travel
NYC & Marley White
New York City
For just one version of pastoral bliss in Central Park, head to the meadow by Belvedere Castle, which gets covered with red leaves from the black tupelo trees—or book a Central Park-facing room at the Mandarin Oriental New York. Heading downtown, explore the latest stretch of the High Line—the park space created out of old elevated rail tracks—between 30th and 34th streets. Well into October, you can enjoy its seasonal food kiosks, such as Blue Bottle Coffee or Delaney Barbecue’s SmokeLine.
