With central park in full bloom and a warm breeze on the city streets, who doesn’t love New York in the spring? Plus, with the return of the sunshine comes plenty of events to take part in. From free art fairs to comedy shows to concerts, there’s so much to do in New York, it almost doesn’t seem feasible. So that you aren’t completely overwhelmed, here is a shorter list of some of the spring events that you may find interesting in the great city of New York:
Tribeca Film Festival: From April 16th – 27th enjoy watching some creative, eye-gripping films at Bow Tie Cinemas in Chelsea. But, Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Film Festival has so much more than just films. There is an ESPN Sports Film Festival, a Family Festival Street Fair and various Tribeca Talks, that provide free panels for aspiring filmmakers. So grab a date, or film guru and hit the theatre in late April!
Ferry Bar Crawl: With warm weather finally on its way in NYC it’s time to get outside and on the river. So hop on the East River ferry and make your way to the Hudson on an afternoon filled with laughter, dancing, and drinks on a ferry bar crawl. This is a great activity to do with a group of friends if you’re celebrating a graduation, job promotion, or even a birthday.
Grilling on the Brooklyn Waterfront: What better way to save money on a fancy dinner downtown than to grab some hotdogs and hamburgers from your local market and make your way to Brooklyn Bridge Park, where you can grill right on the waterfront for free. Plus, if you go on a Sunday you’ll have the luxury of being amidst Schmorgesborg, the king of brooklyn flea markets.
Orchid Show: For just a small fee, spend a day in the NY Botanical Garden and enjoy the beauty of nature at the Orchid Show until April 21st. This aerial display of orchids is unlike any other and the event includes dance performances, poetry, and orchid care demonstrations. On certain nights, you can even participate in Orchid Evenings, and walk around the orchid escape with a date at sunset.
Keep in mind, this is just a short list of all the things you can do in NYC in the springtime. So if none of these spark your interest, check out Thrillist’s article on things to do in NYC in the spring.
