NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — People across the Tri-State area were out and about Saturday enjoying record warmth in December.

With 60-degree temperatures for the third day in a row, many were questioning whether the region will ever see a real winter, CBS2’s Ilana Gold reported.

“It’s almost like summertime, you know? I’m loving it,” said one resident.

The weather is perfect for playing tennis, tossing a Frisbee around or for going on a run.

“This is very special, very unusual for December,” said Pinchas Berger.

Outdoor restaurant seating in Hoboken, New Jersey, usually empty this time of year, was bustling.

“It is definitely strange for a Christmastime with not having snow,” Hoboken resident Ali Galer told CBS2’s Dave Carlin.

Stephanie Noga said she doesn’t need a coat or even long sleeves.

“I know, it’s crazy!” she said. “It’s 60, so why not?”

This time last year, it was cold enough for a dusting of snow. Now, folks are wearing tank tops and shorts while exercising in Central Park.

“I’m taking advantage of this every single day. I’m fortunate, I’m retired, I can be out here as long as I want,” said Berger.

Golfers also took advantage of the warm weather, lining up at Lido Golf Club, where workers expect several hundreds golfers — normally what they would see in June, WCBS 880’s Ginny Kosola reported.

“Golfing in December in New York, it doesn’t get any better than that,” said Danny Ramos, who got up early to head to the course.

“So far already around 60 or 70 playing, forecast around 200 golfers by the end of the day,” said the club’s assistant director Michael Judge.

One of those golfers was 13-year-old Matthew Schurin, of Island Park.

“It’s hard to believe really. Last year, I stopped golfing probably around three weeks ago. Just making the most of it,” he said.

At the Columbus Circle Holiday Market, it’s warm enough to walk around and ditch the winter coat.

“I decided to embrace spring today. I knew it would be short-lived, so I figured I would live it up while I could,” said Rob Feinberg.

Feinberg said he can’t remember the last time he could wear short sleeves in December — and it’s only going to get warmer in the next few days.

“Maybe I’ll wear shorts tomorrow, who knows,” he said.

But for some vendors, unseasonably warm temperatures are less than ideal.

“I really do wish it was colder, though I was really looking forward to snow and feeling wintry and cozy and it’s not happening for me right now,” said Clarice Lam, with The Baking Bean.

Lam said snow and wintry weather would be much better for her business.

“Definitely when it’s colder we sell a lot more hot chocolate,” she said.

But it’s definitely making it easier to take a stroll on the Coney Island boardwalk without the winter chill.

“For this December weather, it feels too good to be true,” said Justin Rolon, of Coney Island.

Many folks across the area are also making plans this weekend to get their holiday shopping done before the cold creeps in.
