As the amber honey glow of summer melts into autumn, a palpable excitement sweeps through New York’s avenues. Chunky knit sweaters replace flimsy camisoles, pumpkin finds its way into our coffees and lagers, and the orange and yellow hues of fall’s foliage settle like a blanket over old Manhattan. Without a doubt, fall is the best season in New York; a time of year when—as F. Scott Fitzgerald once put it—life starts all over again when the weather gets crisp. In Central Park, the light pink cherry blossoms and verdant fields that mark spring and summer, transition into a brilliant display of burnt orange, golden yellow and chocolate brown leaves that carpet the sidewalks and bridges.
