    The Unconventional Way to Celebrate Fall

When you think of fall, country landscapes probably come to mind. Pumpkin patches, corn mazes, leaf peeping — such autumnal pleasures are stereotypically rural pursuits. But don’t rule out urban settings for fall fun this season. For those visiting us in New York this season, The James NoMad can guide you to plenty of activities without ever having to leave the city. Here are just a few outside-the-box ideas for enjoying autumn in New York.

Enjoy the Local Color in Central Park

Who says you have to leave the city to see fall foliage? There’s no better time to explore Central Park than autumn, when the leaves put on an unparalleled show of gold and red. You can’t go wrong with 843 acres of paths, lakes, ponds, and open meadows, but be sure to visit the park’s more rugged features, including the North Woods, Harlem Meer, and The Ramble.


Stargaze on the High Line

If fall makes you starry-eyed, don’t fight the feeling. Instead, stop by the High Line at 14th Street on Tuesdays between dusk and 9:45pm, where you can view celestial bodies through high-powered telescopes on loan from the Amateur Astronomers Association.


Take it Inside

Prefer to do your peeping indoors? Check out the collections on view at one or more of New York’s classic art museums. Special exhibitions this fall include Wolfgang Tillmans’ groundbreaking “To look without fear” at the Museum of Modern Art and Edward Hopper’s “New York” collection at the Whitney Museum of American Art.


Celebrate fall by attending one or more of these events when you book a room at The James NoMad.
