The trees and flowers are blooming and the crisp cold air is subsiding in the streets of New York City. It’s Spring! Springtime is one of the best times to visit the Big Apple. It’s warm enough to spend the days exploring the city but not hot enough to break a sweat! If you’re visiting during this time of year, pack a light jacket (an umbrella) and some good walking shoes. With the wonderful weather, comes a great line up of Spring activities. Here are just a few of our favorite events and happening this season!
