Personally, I love all the four seasons that the north east has to offer, however there is nothing like autumn in New York. From the weather cooling down, Pumpkin lattes in full force, and the season of boots kicking off, it is one of my favorite times of the year. Maybe you are like myself, jumping full force to the warm aromas of fall or maybe you could live with out the cooler weather creeping in, whatever your preference may be here are some events and places that you will sure love no matter what. Whether you are scavenging through a flea market, taking a few snapshot of daily life in the city, or just heading out of the concrete jungle for an upstate adventure, grab your camera, tote, and make the most out of autumn with these fall events.

A recurring feature, on the Resource website ”Pulling For” is brought to you by our friends at ThePropStylist.com.  We hope to inspire photographers and stylists, to help kick off your fall season with a few of our favorite things to do during autumn in New York!
