Late April and the month of May are the best times to visit. The weather's beautiful and things haven't slowed for the summer.

I've stayed at the Paramount and found it pleasant, stylish, funky and frightfully expensive. The rooms are small. Location is good.

At 1/3 the price, try the Hotel Beacon instead (Broadway @ 74th). Even better location: the real New York.

It must have been an unusually long winter. Average high temperatures in late April are in the mid 60's, lows in the upper 40's. I do find May to be the most pleasant month in general, even though this past May was extraordinarily rainy.

Autumn in New York is beautiful.

Yes, weather is cooling, but not cold. Leaves are changing colors. The city's cultural attractions are at it's height. This is prime time as far as I'm concerned.
