I not-so-secretly think that late September is the best. Here in the Northeast, the air has a bite to it. The sun is still out. The mini-pumpkins are being stacked neatly outside corner bodegas. The breezes are plentiful, and the feeling of change is just everywhere. Needless to say, I welcome the arrival of layers and leathers—and feel completely justified in posting about the season now that it's calendar-official!
