    Fall is definitely the best season in New York. Weather is nice and it is between the peak tourist seasons of summer and the holidays.

    Sounds good. Though, if it's anything like Boston's Fall season, it only lasts for two weeks.

    Fall is the only decent time to be here.

    My daughter is catching on. I said something Saturday about how nice it was and how we should enjoy it and she said "Yeah, but it won't be very long, but it's nice all year in Cailfornia' :slayer:

    Bit longer than that. The mornings are already feeling like Fall is coming, and it will be pleasant (hopefully) until early November. I'm still expecting one last heat wave, though.

    I am a bit of a coffee purist, but Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte in a brisk weather while walking in Central Park is pretty divine.

    Yeah, well, there we go. Hope that's the last hot day like that.

    I hate to say it (because I loved my time living there and am planning to buy something there soon)

    but williamsburg has become a tourist trap. its the pseudo-hipster time square.


    I went back to the old 'hood last saturday to drop off my dogs for daycare and park the car on our way to a yankees game. Walking through on the way to the L train - the amount of tourists is kind of ridiculous. Its not like there's anything that outstanding to eat/do there either. Granted the east river views are glorious but I know most of the tourists don't go to the east river views anyway (because is mostly locals enjoying the views).

    To be fair, Williamsburg has been a tourist-ridden parody of itself for a couple of years now.

    Every now and then we head that way to go out with friends, and on more than one occasion, have been in a bar or whatever that was just covered up in tourists.

    I never had any amazing food in Brooklyn, granted I haven't tried too many, and unless someone tell me otherwise I wasn't going to.

    I do like the view though. Fall is probably the best season in NYC

    the tourists used to be contained to the 5 block stretch of Bedford Ave. until mcCarren park. Now they've spilled over into the parallel streets like Berry towards the river (but weirdly stop when you get to the river). I remember a time where you could walk Berry until you hit Broadway and it was awesome (great grafitti, street art, a couple of cute hipster girls, and maybe one or two bikers), but it was chalk full of tourists just taking pictures of shoes hanging from telephone lines like its high art.
