December  Weather:
- Average High: 44°F (7°C) - Average Low: 32°F (0°C)
- Don't let the cold weather keep you from seeing all of New York City's great December sights. As long as you dress appropriately, it doesn't tend to be very cold in December and the season's festivities and lights bring an energy to the city that is particularly memorable.

What to Wear:

  • a warm, windproof jacket
  • long pants
  • closed toe shoes, comfortable for walking and water-resistant, if possible
  • gloves or mittens, a hat and scarf to keep warm
  • Dressing for the weather is essential to having a pleasant time visiting New York City in December. Although you might not consider it an outdoor destination, in order to see most of the sights and to experience the city, you're going to find yourself spending more time outside and perhaps more time walking than you might expect. Being comfortably dressed for the weather, including wearing layers that can help you adjust to the variation in temperatures you will experience between being outside, being in the subway and during visits to museums and attractions, will play a key role in allowing you to maximize your enjoyment during your visit.

December Perks:

  • Holiday Window Displays
  • Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree
  • New York City is a great place to do your Holiday Shopping. The city's many holiday markets are great places to buy interesting gifts for just about anyone on your holiday shopping list -- and they've become well curated over the years so there are lots of local and handmade goods available.

December is a memorable and magical time to visit NYC....
