Although the fascination of New York is seasonless, certain events take place at certain times of the year. The best time for theatre, for example, is from October to May, although there are always plays to see and summer presentations such as the free Shakespeare Festival and concerts in Central Park. You’ll find major league baseball games in summer and spring, football in autumn and other sporting events all year round.
