So you’re off to New York in the winter? You’ve already committed a brave and bold move without even stepping foot on the city that is described to be a world in itself. Expect cold, extremely cold climates, and prepare yourself accordingly.

So here’s what to pack for New York in the winter to get you feeling like a New Yorker in no time…
What to Pack for New York (Winter Edition)
To keep warm in New York during the winter you’re going to need layers… and lots of them. But perhaps the most important garment in your suitcase will be the final one: the coat or trench, known also as the outerwear.
