Visit New York City
Best Time to Visit NYC
Year-round. Central Park is as beautiful in full bloom as it is blanketed in snow. Each season offers something just a bit different—and equally worth seeing.
New York City Transportation
With more than 650 miles of subway track and the largest fleet of busses in North America, NYC’s public-transit system is the easiest way to get around. A single MetroCard ride (good for all subway and bus routes, plus access in and out of New Jersey on the efficient PATH train) costs $2.75; a seven-day unlimited MetroCard costs $31.
New York City Weather
January is the coolest month with an average temperature of 36°F (2.2°C). July is the hottest month with an average temperature of 83°F (28.9°C).
Know Before Visiting
Snag considerable deals on hotels—and experience NYC when it’s not packed to the brim!—just after New Year’s and in summer. These seasons offer easy access to what would otherwise be crowded exhibitions, activities, and restaurants.
