July Weather:

  • Average High: 85°F (29°C)
  • Average Low: 70°F (21°C)
  • July tends to be the hottest and wettest month of the year, so pack accordingly.

What to Wear:

  • pack an umbrella
  • a light sweater or waterproof jacket (for keeping warm in the air conditioned museums and stores)
  • closed toe shoes, comfortable for walking and water-resistant if possible
  • a picnic blanket is great if you want to check out some of the free concerts and movies

July Perks:

July Cons:

  • subways and streets can be uncomfortable in the heat
  • it frequently rains

Good to Know:

  • Drink plenty of water -- it's easy to get dehydrated when it's really hot.
  • If you want to go to any of the movies or free concerts in New York City parks, bring a blanket and pack a picnic dinner -- you can even bring some wine and beer if you're discrete. It's a great experience and truly gives you a taste of being a local New Yorker.
