I will travel with my friends to US on August and will be in NY on 13 and 14 Aug 2016. Will anyone free on that day and can join us to go around NY?I also would like to ask if it is ok to take away and bring the food (such as pizza) inside the subway?

Ummm, born and raised here, been riding the train/subway all my life, ALL. MY. LIFE, it's public transportation, so YK86, it is a big YES, you may eat anything in the subway and on the train. You will see for yourself, it is done. Do what you feel is comfortable, it's NY, whatever is whatever. LOL, I'll admit, it is annoying for me to see or even smell if it's pungent, but/and I also eat on the train when I am hella hungry. Do you, boo. :-)....(Very good question). :-D And, yes, I will be free to hang out with you and your friends, whoo-hoo.

Yes you can definitely carry food on the subway. As far as eating it, no gross don't do it unless you want 100 people to hate you all at once and give you death stares. Lol @Fatah C you definitely from the Bronx with advice like that.
The obvious reason of why you should not eat or drink on a subway train is that if you suddenly spill something on the person next to you then it's going to be an ugly scene. Subway trains are well-known for lurching, wobbling, and suddenly braking. However maybe the question is whether you can transport food. Yes you can, even durians. Though you won't find many of those here.

Take the MetroNorth (from Grand Central) half an hour north and you'll be in the Hudson Valley... Lots of parks and places to kayak and much cleaner and prettier than anything you'll see in the city! There're also some cool historic sites, like Phillipsburg Manor.
There is so-so kayaking in Manhattan, but if you look at the National Park Service website for Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge you will find some nice info. I am actually at the visitor center there right now. And they offer kayak tours from the Canarsie Pier throughout the summer. www.nps.gov/gate and also you can download their new app Gateway National Recreation Area for iOS or Android that also lists all the nearby sites ranging from Brooklyn to Staten Island to New Jersey.

Not stupid question!
Typically in the 50s and 40s, though of course things can vary. But IMHO it's the best time of year; I'm a cold-weather girl but winter in New York is so damn windy (plus any and all snow turns yellow the moment it hits the street!) that Autumn is indeed the best time of year for visit this city that I can tell you, as a native, has crap weather in general.
Jacket, but not a crazy-Antarctic-ready one. Just a normal jacket with some layers to apply and remove as needed!
Hope you enjoy NY in the fall!

Early November can be fairly warm in NYC. Likely rainy. It's basically "leather jacket" weather. There's a good chance it will still be warm & pleasant, winter in NYC truly only starts in January.

"Normally" it can be chilly but last year we were walking around in T-shirts in the middle of December. Thanks global warming! If you want something a bit more fact based I recommend the following site: http://www.intellicast.com/Local/History.aspx?location=USNY0996

In less than a month, I'am going to visit New York with my family. So I'am preparing the trip now but I have a bit of a situation, I don't know where to eat or which restaurant to pick for lunch or dinner. Do you New Yorkers have some recommendations for several restaurants in several districts?
Kris Kemp , New York, USA, about 2 months ago
Just download the Yelp.com app for your smartphone and type in "restaurant NYC _______" and zip code or area. For example "thai restaurant NYC East Village" and search for it. Find one with good reviews and good prices.

Most neighbohoods are safe. As Jose asks, the important question is your budget. Cheapest is going to be Washington Heights, maybe you could get a room for $1000 or studio for $1500.
