Apple picking

At this time of year, apple picking is a very popular weekend activity for both New Yorkers and tourists.  Although there are no apple orchards in the city, there are several farms that are quite close to Manhattan.  Here are some of our top picks of farms for apple picking and celebrating the fall harvest season that are less than an hour away from the city.
