New York City's most colorful time of the year.
As much as New York City is about The Statue of Liberty, Broadway Theater, Museums, and multitudes of people scurrying from place to place, we also have some beautiful park land to be able to catch our breath.
It has been a lovely fall in Brooklyn this year. Warm temps have delayed the color display in the parks, but just this week, glimpses of the annual change are evident.
My favorite spot this time of year is Prospect Park in Brooklyn. It is a fantastic place to take in the autumn colors while strolling the many paths that leave you, at times, thinking that you are in the country and have left the city far behind.
Prospect Park is located next to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Brooklyn Museum, therefore it is possible to have a wonderful cultural and country excursion all in one go.
This is the best time of year to visit New York City and its boroughs. The air is dry and crisp and often quite warm mid-day, cooler evenings mean you can sport your autumn wardrobe in style as you stroll the streets post dinner. Of course, you will work up a great big appetite and so a further jaunt down to Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn will satisfy the rumblings in your tummy. Enjoy!
