New York City has the best, PERFECT 4 season weather in North America, if not among the World.

It has pretty warm summers, with occasional thunderstorms, and occasional hot & humid, or Warm & low humidity. Not very dry or very rainy summers. Warm enough for beach! AWESOME spring/fall, and PERFECT winters, with plenty of Sunshine, and some snow.

I beg to differ, if it doesn't start to get warm later in the summer, then its the fact that summers are unbearably sticky. The weather is getting somewhat inconsistent, sometimes cooler summers, sometimes warmer falls, or winters, no real snowfall. By no way am I saying that the weather here is terrible, but it def isn't the best imo.

I don't think NYC has "true four-season" weather, Winters aren't really that cold & snowy (to me it is very cold though), I'd say the Summers are a little too hot & humid (I love it) as well.

I think NYC has more of a 3.5 season (not really 4 seasons but not quite 3 seasons) climate.

I think somewhere in the Midwest or Interior/Northern-Northeast may have the best four-season weather.

I'm more of a two-season type of person lol.

Well, I do not think the weather is going to be so "PERFECT" tonight and tomorrow, lol. Heavy pouring cold rain, upper 30s tonight, lows 50s tomorrow.

Enjoy!

So because it's NYC thats automatically true?? The entire Mid-Atlantic from No. Virginia up to NY have the same 4 season weather patterns your talking about, so its not just subject to the 5 boroughs of NYC. It snowed in NY this week, it snowed in DC too...As we speak it's 41 degrees in New York, and 38 in DC, not much difference, shouldn't surprise anyone that its cooler here even though we're further south.

^^Actually, it hasn't snowed yet in NYC or Long Island. You're thinking upstate NY. And as we speak, upstate and NJ is getting nailed with snow; we have pouring rain.

Why do people think that unless it's -50 and there are snow piles as tall as houses it's not really winter?

I've always wondered the same thing and never really got an answer.

It snowed 5" in central/upper Westchester today. That's not "upstate". That's 30 miles from NYC.

I like intrerior New England better since it is somewhat colder in winter with more dry snow, less humid in summer and seems "dryer" all year. New York (and coastal New England and Boston and NJ and Philly and Delaware and eastern Maryland) all get too much cold rain in the winter and too humid in the summer.
