Looking at it now it seems that some days will have definitely no need for it, but the later days in our trip might see it peak at a max of -4 ... It also doesn't help that different websites give vastly different forecasts!

We had snow the day before we went last time too - it was lovely walking (slithering!) around Central Park all covered in it.

I also go on holiday for food reasons! I've been craving some proper American pancakes for ages, so that will be breakfast day 1!
It's good you have the option of taking a 3rd case, at least you can pack for any eventuality. The coat situation is so hard, as it's freezing outside but every hotel/restaurant/shop etc has heating blasting out at 30c. I found it easier to wear a big coat and a jumper with t shirt or vest underneath rather than layers. Just whip the coat off as so as you go inside and saves having to peel off layers.

I still haven't made any concrete plans for our trip. Although we are considering going to the IHOP at Jersey Garden Malls as we didn't visit it last time and the only other one is between 14th/15th St.

Let me know if you find any good places to eat

Look forward to reading all about it on your return. Oh and I say take the third case, I'm a 'what if' kinda gal!
Going Business is lovely. In July we did Business out and First back from Vegas so that was really special (Avios again). 6 weeks later we did Orlando in economy which was something of a culture shock!

We have done Tick Tock Diner before. I wasn't blown away by it to be honest. The food was good enough, perhaps just a bit pricey. Then again, it's not a million miles from our hotel so who knows!

Yes it's always enter shop, grab a basket or shopping bag and put the coat in it!

I've never one the malls or outlets outside of NYC. Probably should try it out one day! Actually, in all our many trips to the States (which is about 12 now) we've never been to an IHOP either! Went into one once in Orlando but it was full so we left.

Well, we are now checked in! Our friends arrived safely in Vegas last night and we'll meet them in NYC on Thursday.

I'm about 95% sure my work still haven't realised I'm not going to be here for a week. And I am still not going to mention it... I do have a meeting later and it's possible that somebody will ask me to do something over the next couple of days in which case it'll come out, but if not then I think it's pretty funny!

Been keeping an eye on the forecast and actually it looks quite chilly. Last time in Jan it was freezing cold at first, then really warm. This time it looks to be not quite as cold, but still very very cold, and a bit more consistently so. So the big coat is packed. I know you were all dying to find out if I was taking it or not.

Packing is mostly done, just a few more bits to quickly chuck in the case after work, then we leave at 7pm for the Sofitel at Terminal 5!

Not that much... once or twice when going to posh restaurants in the evening I just wore a shirt and the big coat

Then on the last day it was -15 and windy, so the "feels like" temperature was -24 ... so yes - I definitely wore it!

Wow, it was cold then. My big coat is definitely coming with me. As long as it's dry the cold is bearable, but add in wind and rain makes me a miserable bunny!
