If you’re not into skiing, the winter months can be brutal with temperatures that drop as low as 15F (-9C) and snowstorms that dump several feet of snow. There is hardly a better place to experience fall than in New York, which, come mid-October, is endowed with brilliant red and gold foliage.

Most parts of New York are fine to explore, but you haft to be carful. Even though tons of famous and rich people live there, doesn't mean poor people and the homeless wouldn't be wondering the streets.

with scenic resorts, and historical sites and a plethora of things to do, you remember the theme'I Love New York' . From Montauk to the Falls, New York State offers something for everyone. The Philadelphia Orchestra's summer home is Saratoga New York, not Pennsylvania!
