Fall in New York is one of our favorite times of the year. The city comes alive with travelers and locals, the weekends become bustling again after the slow summer months, and everyone is excited to be surrounded by the energy. Hit the streets and soak in the steadfast vibe with these fantastic outdoor festivals.
