November is a great month to visit New York City -- it begins with the New York City Marathon and ends with the Thanksgiving Day Parade -- both iconic events that are worth experiencing in person. November's weather is comfortable for exploring the city, and by the end of the month, the city is transformed into a holiday-inspired wonderland, complete with a tree in Rockefeller Center and many of New York City's Holiday Window Displays.

November Weather:

  • Average High: 54°F (12°C)
