Pollen forecast for New York City

Check out the pollen forecast in New York City for the next few days. We’re all about days when the pollen count is so low, it’s easy to say yes to walking through Central Park or playing chess at Washington Square Park. When pollen counts are higher than the High Line, pack Kleenex On-the-Go, so you can stay prepared for allergies, wherever you are.

Pollen hotspots in New York City

From January through May, tree pollen raises pollen counts to some of their highest levels. After that, pollen levels remain fairly low from June through the rest of the year and even from August through October, when pollen from weeds causes a slight uptick in pollen counts. (So hopefully you can do some ice skating at Winter Village, sniffle-free.) When pollen counts are higher than the Empire State Building, you might want to steer clear of parks and grassy areas if you want to keep seasonal allergies at bay. Thankfully, the Big Apple has a ton of activities that help you avoid pollen, so you can rest easy knowing that you can get the most out of the City that Never Sleeps—even during allergy season.


Allergy friendly activities in New York City

Walking through Riverside Park is fun but walking through Riverside Park with seasonal allergies can feel tougher than finding seats in a coffee shop in SoHo. Thankfully, NYC has a ton of opportunities for you to experience the city while avoiding pollen during allergy season.

NYC Restaurants

New York is one of the food capitals of the USA, and with good reason. Anywhere you go, you can find something delicious, like a bagel, a dollar-slice pizza, falafel or even a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich at a nearby bodega, plus far, far more. You can pretty much find any cuisine of the world here. Indoor dining also means you get a break from the pollen while you’re discovering new favorite restaurants to share with the people you love.

Live Music in NYC

It goes without saying that the NYC music scene has some of the most talented and respected musicians in the nation. It also has some indoor venues that can help you avoid pollen during allergy season.

New York City Sports

In addition to having truly outstanding food and live music, NYC also has some extremely talented baseball, basketball, and football teams. Take a seat away from the pollen by kicking back and watching some fun sports action!
