Eric’s Tips

 

New York in October is good news for autumn enthusiasts and there is lots to do inside and outdoors. Visit one of the reopened observation decks or absorb New York’s museums and art. Enjoy Halloween with abundant decorations and, at the end of the month, see the leaves start to change colour in Central Park. View all events per day below.
