New york in February

21
Found 17th Jun
Anyone been to New York in February? Was it really cold? Prices are really good around the middle of the month but is that because it’s pointless going as weather is too cold. October is my second choice but extra £600. Its for 2 adults and a teenager. Once in a lifetime trip.

Thanks. Would you recommend?
October (IMHO) would be a much better bet. NYC in Feb could be anything from standard UK winter to 6 foot of snow. Late autumn is a great time to go.

Think October might be best. Would be so gutted to spend all that money to sit in a hotel room. Thanks

Yeah but it would be better in October. One thing when it’s cold though is you will see the steam coming out of the roads like in the movies

We've just booked to go next Feb as we're limited to school holidays and we already have something sorted for October half term.

After spending a load of time totting up flights and accommodation, hotel vs Airbnb etc etc we ended up booking flights and hotels through BA. After working out the actual cost of the hotel we're paying about £360 return for the flights each. It worked out a fair bit less than going with Norwegian or similar and paying for the accommodation on top. A lot of the prices quoted from other places that worked out cheaper had terrible flight times or were indirect via somewhere in Europe first.

Plus, whilst BA are no longer as good as they used to be, they have more than enough flights and partner airlines to get is home if the weather is horrendous and flights end up being cancelled.

Added to that we got 10% cashback through Complete Savings as well
I was there 11th Feb for 6 weeks last year, it really was fiercely cold the whole time.

Its NYC, the city that never sleeps, so never really quiet, but anytime that is not June-Sept is better for crowds and blistering heat. As I said, Oct (and Apr May late Sept) are prime visiting times.
I've been at the end of January and it was so forefathers were huge blocks of ice in the hudson. It was unbelievably cold

Thankyou. Must’ve been good to see the ice though?

oh it certainly was. It snowed one day. Put down about three feet in an evening. By the following morning the pavements were all clear and the roads open. Wouldn't happen in this country. Two inches and our entire infrastructure collapses
So true.
From memory, February seems to be a bad time for airport closures/flight delays because of the snow.
I might be wrong.
Thankyou. That would be a complete nightmare think I will go in October too risky weather wise.

No bother at all. The explorer passes work if you can see all the attractions. I booked the ones I wanted to see directly and with the upgrade to skip the line. Rather see less but in comfort :-) I'd recommend skiping the line for the Statue of Liberty and Empire State. Must have saved us at least 3 hrs.

Just for info Groupon have deal on for the 5 Pass.
