Today is Labor Day the unofficial end to Summer. Summer actually ends in about two weeks, but here in the good ole USA Summer ends with Labor Day. Which means a sad ending for most people but not for me. Yes I am sad that my seersucker suits and my spectators go in the closet until Memorial Day and some of my straw hats are gone until next year also. But with Labor and the end of Summer means it is now “AUTUMN IN NEW YORK”. Autumn in New York is the greatest time of year. With the cool nights means the roof top bars will be packed again people are coming back from vacation and we will all start working again.
The weather is the best it is all year; the colors of the leaves changing make Central Park magnificent. If you don’t believe grab lunch or dinner at the Central Park Boat House. It is by far the best time of the year for Sports, Football is back and nothing is better than College Football. I am so looking forward to Saturday’s with my boys watching the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Baseball Playoffs start, MLS Playoffs, and the start of the NHL season in October and the NBA in November. In addition if you enjoy international soccer (as I do) all the European leagues are in full swing. So enjoy all the sports, no time of the year has more sports to watch.
Yes in a few weeks all my straw hats go away and if is a sad time for me as I pack them up for the winter, however I have an equal joy and cracking open the boxes to bring out my fall/winter hats. Complete different look than the straw and I love them as well as my straw ones.
Autumn brings back the buzz to New York City vacations are over people are working again restaurants are full and the nightlife gets back to normal. Autumn is really a special time of year and it is my favorite season by far. When we meet someone during the Summer we always ask, “How is your Summer going?” I say we change that to “How is you Autumn Going?”
So let’s embrace this year and truly enjoy Autumn In New York and nobody can say it better than Ole Blue Eyes himself. Enjoy the song and enjoy Autumn in New York.
