The weather in New York City is one of the first topics to come up in conversation when attending school at FIT. Students have become accustomed to checking the weather every morning, in order to dress accordingly. Looking outside can be deceiving. New York experiences the four seasons: a hot summer, a cool fall, a freezing winter, and a late but enjoyable spring. Students who attend FIT must have a wide range of clothes in order to be prepared for any type of weather.
When the weather is nice, students are found hanging outside on campus or roaming the city, giving them time to enjoy the sun before their next class.
