Spring in New York
Spring in New York
Spring in New York City is a magical time, where you can find various parks full of flowers and trees of different colors. Likewise, spring is the ideal time to travel to New York as a family, to enjoy the various activities of the city in the open air.
New York’s unofficial cultural season kicks off May 9-21, making it ideal for discovering the most iconic cultural sites in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island.
You can explore its museums, galleries and performing arts centers, as well as enjoy concerts, guided tours and much more in the city, such as The Mall an Literary Walk, the Museum of Queens, Hudson Yards, Coney Island Amphitheater and much more. .
Many of the spring plans in New York have to do with nature. And it is not for less. Undoubtedly, the most sought-after event, and it is so because of its brevity, is the cherry blossoms.
Many of them came from Japan in 1912 to celebrate the good friendship with the United States and they are scattered throughout the city. With the arrival of the warmer temperatures, some beautiful pink petals open on its branches that are torn off by the breeze after a few days. The effect can be seen from the end of March, although in some points it may take several more weeks. Sakura Park, in the Morningside Heights neighborhood, is the park where the majority is concentrated, but Central Park, between 72nd and 96th streets, you will find many cherry trees. Other must-sees include Roosevelt Island, Flushing Meadows Corona Park and, of course, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, which hosts its annual Sakura Matsuri Festival.
Cherry trees aside, Central Park remains the center of spring in New York. Also, this year we have one more excuse to lose ourselves in it. An eagle owl endearingly nicknamed Skinny, who escaped from the city zoo in January, now roams free sleeping during the day and hunting rats at night. It changes location regularly and you have to be lucky to find it (or follow the expert bird watchers) but there may not be a more entertaining activity.
Losing yourself in the labyrinthine paths of the park is an activity that is worth doing any time of the year, but more seasonally is the boat rental at The Lake. Starting in April, for only about $20 for a group of four, you can paddle across the park’s lake and admire the skyscrapers of Manhattan on the horizon. If you prefer to enjoy Central Park from the air, the best observatory is the terrace of the Metropolitan Museum, which opens in mid-April and until autumn. Its views of the city are unbeatable and, every year, it has an open-air exhibition that is spectacular.
Another park with many attractions is the Hudson River Park that follows the entire shoreline of the river from Tribeca to the Upper West Side. The reconversion of its old docks has allowed the opening of playgrounds, sports courts and gastronomic markets, such as the one that opens this spring at Pier 57. They are all linked by a bike lane and another for runners and it is one of the busiest promenades. Manhattan contrasts.
And speaking of food, don’t miss the open-air markets that make a strong comeback in spring. The busiest of all, Smorgasburg, opens in early April at Williamsburg’s Marsha P. Johnson Park, offering a diverse menu with stunning views of the skyline. The Bronx Night Market takes place on the last Saturday of the month and the Queens Night Market, on Saturdays until midnight. Not to be missed are the artisan and antique bazaars like the Grand Bazaar NYC, Brooklyn Flea and Hester Street Fair.
Winter closed, we ran out of ice skating rinks. But there is spring alternative. After last year’s success, Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace returns to Rockefeller Center, a 70s roller skating rink, smaller than its predecessor, and a disco atmosphere that invites you to dance, rather than skate. Or both at the same time, depending on the particular skills. The party starts in April. In Bryant Park, the ice rink disappears to rediscover the lawn where you can set up the perfect picnic and attend the many activities that take place on its stage.
Although the heat of summer is still a long way off, spring is a good time to go to the beach. The first excuse is given to us by the Luna Park amusement park, in Coney Island, which opens its doors on March 31 and with new attractions. It can be easily reached by subway from midtown Manhattan. But for the Queens beach, Rockaway, a good alternative is to take the NYC Ferry with several itineraries that connect all the districts along the East River.
