And we cannot stress this enough - make sure to step up your wardrobe. Though magical, the fall weather here can get freezing-cold and chill you to the bone. The thing with New York is that thanks to its grid city plan, some streets go dead straight for miles and can turn into wind tunnels; tunnels filled with cold winds blowing from the Hudson River. So staying warm is the way to go to New York in the fall.
Our stay in the Big Apple will place us in its heart, into the Hudson Yards district, with easy access to Manhattan’s most popular attractions such as the Empire State Building, Times Square, Madison Square Garden, Central Park, the Grand Central, Chelsea and the High Line Park. Efficient space-wise and well-appointed in terms of amenities, the Four Points by Sheraton hotel offers private bathrooms, an on-site restaurant and a 24-hour front desk at the property with great bellmen. A perfect place to put your feet up and kick back a little after a rich day spent capturing the bustle of the metropolis.
