Is rain gear readily available if needed?

Jump to last reply

My husband has been checking the extended forecast for May 25 - June 2nd and of course, with any extended forecast, there are chances of rain (one day 60% thunderstorms). I am trying to keep packing very light since it costs $25 per checked bag and therefore, I am not planning on bringing rain gear for seven (raincoats, large umbrellas, rain-type shoes like the ones Sperry makes. I will bring small travel umbrellas). If we need it while there due to heavy rain, is readily available without paying a small fortune? We are staying at the Affinia Dumont and it seems there are places around there to buy it.
Also, what is the most reliable weather site that New Yorkers use?
Also, do things go on as usual (ex. We have the Foods of NY walking tours one day) in rainy weather or in downpours?
Thanks.
