NYC June Events & Things to Do

What to Wear in NYC in June - New York Weather June

June in NYC offers some of the year's most perfect NYC weather. Central Park foliage is in gorgeous bloom, the trees lush and the water starting to warm. New Yorkers are consistently playing outside: beach, tennis, volleyball, frisbee, biking, baseball and much more. The weather in NYC in June is fairly consistent day to night and most likely you not need any sort of jacket or coat. You can bring an evening sweater to be safe, but the dress code is likely shorts, tanks/tees, sundresses and open toe shoes. Historical June high/low temperatures are 81/63 (F) and 27/17 (C).
