    Time zone New York - Italy

    As we wrote in our US time zone article, the US is divided into 6 time zones, which makes it a little tricky to figure out what time it is across the US at the same time. Just like Boston, Washington, Philadelphia and Miami, the time zone of New York belongs to the named band Eastern Standard Time (UTC-5), that has -6 ore of difference with Italy.



    This means that if in Italy it is 16, the New York is 10 in the morning (10 AM, according to the American wording).

    If you have already booked your flight and are wondering how to understand the arrival times in the USA from Italy or vice versa, don't worry: the plane ticket always shows the local time, net of the time zone.

    Summer time and standard time: how does the New York time vary?

    Apart from a few small exceptions that we talked about in the previously cited article and in the insight into the Arizona time zone, daylight saving time is in effect throughout the United States (Daylight Saving Time) from second Sunday of March up to first Sunday of November, when solar time is active again. In this period - I remember it for those who always make confusion - the hour hands move forward. What does all this entail?

    As we know, thedaylight saving time in Italy it starts on the last Sunday in March and lasts until the last Sunday in October. What happens in those short periods of March and October / November when the schedules are not aligned? Simple, in those cases the time zone is -5 hours compared to Italy. This further delay is due to the choice of the United States to bring forward the start of summer time, a decision taken after theEnergy Policy Act of 2005.

    How to survive the Jet Lag arriving in New York?

    In the case of trips in America, jet lag due to the time zone it is the most feared bugbear by travelers. Even in the case of New York, in which the hours of difference are "just" -6, the physical shock can be a negative factor for the first hours - if not the first days - of stay in the city. What are the remedies for jet lag? There are many theories, I will just give you some useful information to know what to expect and some targeted advice to cushion the impact of the effects of jet lag.

    Two concrete examples

    Imagine that your departure from Italy is at 7 am with a direct flight: you will arrive in New York after about 9 hours of flight, at 16 Italian. Well, in New York, it will only be 10AM: breakfast time (for those who are not an early riser ...), when instead of your Italian habits you were already starting to think about what to eat for dinner. In practice, the time difference between departure and arrival is sun 3 hours, when you have been through it well 9 by plane!

    On the contrary, imagine leaving New York at 18 in the afternoon destination Italy always with a direct flight: the classic 9 hours of flight will ensure that you arrive in Italy at 3 AM (time to which you were used with so much effort!). Well, you will be dead tired, but in Italy there will be the light of 9 in the morning and a whole day to live.

    How to mitigate the effects of Jet Lag?

    The two cases mentioned are illustrative. Nausea, insomnia and a general lightheadedness as well as loss of appetite are the most common effects of jet lag. How to solve this problem? There are no tricks to stop the cycle of hours, but you can get ready for jet lag.

    • The night before leaving for New York, go to bed a couple of hours later, so as to reduce the shock due to the difference in hours.
    • If, on the other hand, you are going from New York to Italy, anticipate the moment of rest by a couple of hours for the same reason.
    • Do not follow the times you are used to but, as far as possible, go along with the time of the city immediately to which you have landed. Did you arrive in New York at 21 PM Italian time (4 PM American, mid-afternoon)? When you arrive at the hotel, do not put on your pajamas closing the blinds as if you were in Italy; rather go out, start visiting New York, stay outdoors, eat something for a snack and go straight as long as your body allows it: it will help you settle in.
