From Jeff Foliage, predicting September:
I think the fall colors in scenic Massachusetts may be a tad later than the 15th but arriving in full force by the 20th. Again… if your plans say you HAVE to be in Massachusetts on the 5th or 10th of Oct then don’t panic. Remember I said that “some trees” turn early and I guarantee you will see “some” trees in full fall colors and some that are just starting. but later “should be better” as you move south into MA, CT and RI and NY… Yes, I said New York. They normally have quite a spectacular fall color display just like their Eastern neighbors."
Weather.com is predicting peak for CNY/Upstate will be around early October.
