Fall is in full swing here in New York. There’s pumpkin spice in every latte on both sides of the East River, couples in cable sweaters nod approvingly at one another, sharing their pride in seasonal apparel, and the leaves are falling. They’re everywhere, especially on cars.

But here in New York, that’s usually not an option. We have to be vigilant about it, like my neighbor in his brilliant white Jaguar I-Pace above.
