New York City in the summer is HOT (or least it really can be!) but there is plenty of shade between buildings and in Central Park. When considering what to pack for a weekend in New York City I recommend going for light layers and easy to wear pieces. Footwear is the biggest challenge in New York City in my opinion. I usually like to wear flip flops for comfort on vacation and even for long walking days (call me crazy, but Havainas feel like sneakers to me!) but if you wear open shoes/sandals prepare for your shoes and your feet to get CRAZY dirty in NYC. I remember actually throwing my sandals away - ewwwww! So pack closed toe shoes or be prepared to part with your sandals at the end of the trip if need be - here I included some inexpensive sandals for just that reason! Other necessities include a tote for daytime shopping and walking and a small cross-body bag for evenings and of course a few lightweight layers like a jacket and scarf.
