The cold weather was fine as I had taken warm clothing, though the day it drizzled was a bit dismal, but there is so much to see and do in the city that poor weather shouldn't really spoil your visit, unless of course it's feet of snow, though I think March is probably to late in the year for snowstorms.
OH has been a few times but always warmer times.
I am liking the Foods of New York tour!
There was snow on the ground when we arrived and the night before we were due to fly home another 2 feet of snow fell. I use the word "due" because we ended up stuck for an extra 3 days (we had gone without our then 2 year old and that was tough). Fortunately we were staying with family on Long Island so we didn't have to worry about accommodation. We could have been home sooner if it was down to weather and infrastructure but BA rebooked us 3 days later (the flight was half empty so I was able to lie across several seats and sleep). This allowed us to get a bonus day in the city after spending extra time with the family.
We were back in October 6 years later with the child we had left behind the first time plus our second child and again stayed with family but by that time my brother-in-law had moved to the Bronx so we stayed with him. The weather then was mixed and we ended up totally drenched one day; February was much better. My brother-in-law has now moved to Connecticut but he works in NYC a few days a month so when we were over staying with him last October we went in to the city for a day when he was going in. It was 84 degrees at 4pm.
Having been up the Empire State Building and the new One World Tower, I would say that the view is better from the One World Tower. Don't miss Central Park, especially if it is snowy (it was even more beautiful on our bonus day).
I highly recommend that you pick up a copy of The Brits' Guide to New York. It was the first Brits' Guide we used and we have since used others.
