New York in February

I am planning to go to New York City in February (week of the 18th). I was wondering if it were really worth it, as far as the weather is concerned. Isn't it too cold? I'm afraid not to enjoy the city because of the cold temperatures. Any of your impressions would be appreciated.

Re: New York in February

I guess you'd just enjoy it less than in... summer, but I mean it's NYC, lucky you.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Too hot? I guess the ideal season to visit New York is spring

Fall is the best season in NYC, actually, September, to be precise.

As for February, could be miserable--grey, rainy, slushy, icy. BUT, you'll still be in a great place to have fun. (It also could be icy, cold, bright, and sunny, which can be great once you have proper garments and sunglasses.)

I was in New York during the US Open, and actually outside of the US Open where you basically melt under the sun because you just sit your ass and die, it was not so bad. Well, I had 1500 blisters and my shirts were quite sweaty, but I just went from Manhattan to Queens 15 times a day in metro to get free conditioned air.

how was February 2011 in NY? I've read temperatures were between -5C and +10C, which is quite close to what we have in Paris. I'm from Marseille, though, so I'm not used to such low temperatures, but I guess it's not impossible to do tourist things even if it's a little bit cold, right? And I guess there's not a lot of tourists at this time of the year? That must be why hotel rooms are 45% cheaper than in April.

Re: New York in February

Best time to visit NYC is April-May, October-December.

February can be tricky, last year wasn't bad at all but the 2 years previous of that were snow storms every week.

So you really never know.

Re: New York in February

You may have to deal with snow but it usually won't shut the city down unless it's really bad. New York is bustling and active in any weather so I would still go if you have the opportunity.

Re: New York in February

It's NYC, the life of the city is not built on the outdoors anyway.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: New York in February

The best part of New York is that it really seems to have every climate under the sun.
It is cold in February though, but it depends on how you see cold.

yeah that's right. but I mean, can it be cold but still sunny so that to enjoy, let's say, the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park etc? of course we're planning to do plenty of museums as well just to stay indoors if it's really cold.

Re: New York in February

IF it snows you can go sledding in Central Park. There are also still traditional bath houses in New York so if it gets too cold, you can head to the sauna. But seriously, other than Central Park and the Bridge, the best things about this city aren't things you'd go outside for. You could check out the architecture, but that's it. The most fascinating thing about New York is how people live here so come in February, find out what bands you like who might be playing a show in one of the The Bowery Presents venues, go shopping, eat at some of the best restaurants in the world, try some awesome cocktails, go to the museums, see a play/musical, take the subway to far corners of the city, go to the Brooklyn Flea Market, go on a food cart tour, and just bring a really good coat.

And there are still tourists here all the time. One of the offices I work at is in Times Square, and I'll tell you, if it weren't for the weather, I wouldn't know what the season was - that place is always swarming with people easily confused by sparkling lights.

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

New York City people are arrogant self-centered a******s regardless of the time of year.
