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.
