What’s the absolute best season in New York City? Of course, it depends on who you ask, but for many of us here at Total Window Service in New York City, the most wonderful season of all is autumn! The air is cool and crisp, the leaves give us a spectacular show that rivals even the best Fourth of July fireworks show, and there is no shortage of fun things to do in this great city, indoors or outdoors.
We’re doing something a little different today. Instead of talking about our great window cleaning services in NYC, we’re getting into the many great things you can do in The Big Apple during the fall. Read on!
Enjoy A Brisk Walk In The Park
Central Park and all of our community parks turn into brilliant shades of red, orange, and gold as the leaves change colors. People come to the region from miles around, and even from out of state, just to experience New York City in all of its fall glory! You’re fortunate to live and work right here where you can enjoy a brisk walk in one of our parks with your coworkers, family members, or friends. It’s a great time of year to exercise through some power walking, since the air is cooler and there’s so much natural beauty to look at all around you. Go outside and get active!
Check Out The Storefronts And Displays
There’s no better place in the nation to go window shopping than The City That Never Sleeps. In the fall, some stores get pretty creative with their festive fall displays. Many businesses that celebrate Halloween (or fall in general) have fun creating elaborate window displays to get the attention of passersby. Spend a fun afternoon window shopping and checking out all the colorful decor!
Check Out A Halloween Parade
If you enjoy celebrating Halloween, you’ll enjoy some of the specialty parades taking place in our city, dedicated to this classic, autumnal holiday! Here’s a partial list of the parades you may decide to see and the holiday festivities you may want to take part in:
- Greenwich Village Halloween Parade
- New York Halloween Parade
- The Monster Ball
- Halloween Harvest Festival
- Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade
Try Some Delicious Fall Flavors
Is there anything better or more nostalgic than the delicious flavors of fall? Wherever you go, you can find wonderful flavors and aromas to tempt you. Apple is definitely one of the dominant flavors of the season; be sure to try apple pie, strudel, and crisp in some of our world-famous bakeries. Of course you’ll have to sample some of the pumpkin dishes found in our great restaurants. Don’t forget delicious pumpkin-flavored treats, including scones, pies, cupcakes, pancakes, muffins, and more. Coffee shops get super creative with their beverages; you’ll want to sample these, too!
Catch A Broadway Play
Broadway is always hopping with great new productions! This coming fall, these are just some of the plays you can catch on a date night, with your family and friends, or solo, if you prefer:
- The Height Of The Storm
- The Sound Inside
- The Rose Tattoo
- American Utopia
- West Side Story
- Grand Horizons
- Birthday Candles
If any of these intrigues you, check out the extensive list (with descriptions) of Broadway plays at Playbill.
Take It To The Top!
Take in the gorgeous New York City skyline from atop one of our famous skyscrapers! From here, you’ll also gain an appreciation for what our building-scaling window cleaning technicians do as they work hard to keep NYC’s skyline squeaky clean!
- Empire State Building
- Try a rooftop bar!
- Top Of The Rock
- Time Warner Building
- One World Observatory
Another option is to take a helicopter ride and take in a whole different view of New York City from the skies!
Explore The Harbor
Whether you ride a free ferry or you take one of our harbor tours, seeing the NYC skyline (and our region’s natural beauty as well) from the water can give you a different perspective. What’s more, many find traveling over water to be highly relaxing. Consider it a form of therapy! Just remember to bundle up; with the moving boat and with being out in the water, winds can kick up, making the cool autumn air feel even colder!
Catch A Sports Event
We don’t even have to go over what types of sporting events you can find in New York City. The short answer is … just about all of them! If you’re a sports aficionado, you already have your favorite teams. Look up their schedules and go see your favorite team live in the fall. The weather is great (not too hot, not too cold), which means you can root for your team while enjoying the crisp, cool fall air and being outside in comfort.
Why Not Have Your Windows Washed?
Now that we’ve shared with you some really fun things you can do in New York City in the fall, we want to share a practical thing you can have done: getting your windows professionally cleaned! Fall is a great time to have your windows washed because it’s after the rains have stopped and before the snowstorms have arrived. You can have a nice, clear, sunny day for the window-cleaning efforts for best results!
