    We are a family of 4, so I think we'll try for Manhattan Club since it appears to be the only one with some semblance of a kitchen(ette) and we prefer 1 bedrooms. Suggestions for a nice time of year to go, spring vs fall months? Summers appear to be hot and my husband doesn't want to be sticky and miserable while walking around outside to see the sites. We're from Phoenix, so I don't want to have to buy a full winter wardrobe for winter months either.

    I would go with Late spring or Early fall- with preference being early fall. Keep in mind it can be windy a lot. Christmas time is awesome- but just way too crowded. Summer is definitely too hot (and humid).
    Bring light jackets, of course.

    Weather is so hard to predict. This past year we had nothing but rain in NY all seasons and even now in January!

    New York weather can vary by year. Best time would be late May, early June, late September, early October but exceptions can happen. At even these times it has been very hot or very cold.

    The last few years we've been visiting NYC in early October. For the most part we've had very good weather.

    Since you are a family of 4 I would assume you have 2 children. Are there any school concerns? That is why most people with kids travel during the school vacation weeks which is Summer, Christmas week, Easter Week, or President's week. Both Christmas week and President's week are too cold for my taste and I would also assume your taste coming from Phoenix. While the Summer can be hot it is not hot compared to Phoenix, although NY does have the humidity. If Easter week is in April like this year that may be your best bet without taking the kids out of school. If school is not an issue then May, Early June, September, early October would be the best choice if the heat is a real concern. We have no kids to worry about, and are from Long Island but we are going into NYC for 8 nights starting on August 29th; we are not worrying so much about being sticky, but Hawaii is our favorite vacation spot so we gravitate and don't shy away from the heat. One of our favorite sayings is that the coldest and most uncomfortable places in Hawaii is indoors, since they usually make it unbearably cold with air-conditioning and we can't wait to get outside in the nice warm natural air.

    We traded into the Manhatten Club some years back and went in mid September. The weather was nice and I guess the crowds were less is what we were told. It still seemed crowded to me. In the evening we wore light jackets. The one bed unit was nice to have.

    But who can tell what the weather will be like on the East Coast anymore. The one thing I did notice in Manhattan was there was plenty of stores in case you forget something. :thumbup:

    I am likely in a similar boat as the OP. We are a family of four with two school age kids looking to make our first timeshare trip to NYC. We have reservations for three nights over Memorial Day Weekend at the Manhattan Club. I booked last fall when a huge points inventory from MC was placed on RCI. In addition to an RCI points property, I also own Hilton Grand Vacations and want to do a trade into West 57th for a 1 BR sometime, but unfortunately those can only be booked from sparse inventory less than 60 days out for me. I expect MC to get harder to book through RCI now that Bluegreen has taken it over.

    We loved Halloween week. The whole city is decorated. It can be cool and once we had big snowstorm.

    "If Easter week is in April like this year that may be your best bet without taking the kids out of school."

    Memorial day weekend in NYC is one of the best times to go, Fleet week could be fabulous for kids!

    I like to go in May and October for the least likely weather issues, but it varies. Sometimes in May, it is 85 degrees and everyone is wearing shorts. Sometimes it is raining. In 2018, I was there in March (very cold, 40s and raining), April (nicer but still needed an umbrella, May (not too cold, needed an umbrella), September (nice, needed an umbrella), October (nice, needed an umbrella), and December (low 30s, no umbrella needed, but sooo cold clear and beautiful!).

    The key is to bring clothes that you can layer, and an umbrella :).
