Lose Yourself in New York City this Fall

When autumn comes to New York City, it brings excitement with it. You can feel it in the crisp air. It’s the excitement for harvest flavors, changing colors, and a wide range of uniquely fall events. And when you visit New York City, the best way to savor the season is to do it with all 5 senses. So here’s a local’s perspective on getting lost in autumn and getting the most out of your fall stay.

See the iconic Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

It’s one of the nation’s most cherished traditions, and if you’re in New York City this fall you can see it in person. Watch the balloon inflation the evening before, or make plans to be there for all the action as the parade makes its way through the streets of the city on Thanksgiving Day.

Taste the distinctive flavors of New York City

Thanks to our Flavor by Loews Hotels program, guests at Loews Regency New York can sample the wares of local food and drink artisans without even leaving the hotel. Try a cocktail featuring Brooklyn Gin, a pizza made from Olivella Bread, and save room for something sweet from Bon Vivant café or West Village bakery Mah Ze Dahr.

Hear New York football fans cheer on their teams.

Nothing says fall like an NFL-filled Sunday. Head to Met Life Stadium in New Jersey for a New York Giants or New York Jets game, and get swept up in the passionate cheers for one of the city’s beloved home teams.

Smell the crisp fall air in Central Park

New York’s iconic Central Park is a beautiful place to wander any time of year, but it’s especially striking in fall, when the leaves turn into golden shades of red, yellow and orange, and the air is crisp and cool, fresh and invigorating. Breathe it all in with a brisk walk around the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir or a stroll through the leafy Ramble.

Feel the magic of the Met Cloisters.

The Met Cloisters, located on four acres overlooking the Hudson River in northern Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park, is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum dedicated to the art, architecture, and gardens of medieval Europe. Visit the museum and beautiful grounds for a serene experience like no other in the city.
