Spring has Sprung in New York City

The endless winter has finally ended and the Springtime events are blooming with the flowers. Check out our top recommended events for this breezy season.

1)   Central Park comes back to life, and so do we!

At the heart of New York City, there is no place like it in the world. Leave the noises and smells of the city, ride into the wild with a bike tour around the 843-acre park designed by Frederick Law Olmstead. Also, spring is the moment when summer bodies are made, and New York is the perfect city for a healthy and fit vacation!

2)   The New York International Auto Show

 The show is incredibly exciting for gearheads and car lovers, but also for anyone who likes to stay ahead of the trends in design and fashion. With over 1 million visitors per year, the show displays trends from the car industry that commonly infiltrate other platforms! Also really exciting this week is the Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary display at the top of the Empire State Building. The car will be on display until Friday, so make sure to get your tickets to the Observatory today!

3)  Dining outdoors is great, and doing it in NYC is even better

There are plenty of beers gardens around the city, but one of our favorites is the Harlem Tavern, in Harlem. If you are visiting, it’s a great spot to meet some locals and take in the scenery, off the beaten path!

4)   Flowers, flowers, flowers at the New York Botanical Gardens

Here is an outdoor activity for everyone to enjoy! Head to the Bronx to see the 250-acre national landmark that charms 800,000 visitors annually!

5)   Baseball season is in full swing

In life, there are few things that signal the start of spring more than the first pitch of baseball season. Catch a home game at the Yankee Stadium or Citi Field, splurge on cold beer and hot dogs, and root, root, root for the home teams!

6)   The Bill Cunningham Exhibit at the New York Historical Society

Here’s a show we’ve been looking forward to all winter here at Harlem Spirituals, bundled up in our winter coats and snow boots. Cunningham uses his sharp eye and passion for people and place to draw unforgettable and unique portraits of New York City from the Upper East Side to Harlem and shed a new light on the varied cultural landscapes.

7)   The Harlem Jazz Shrines Festival

At Harlem Spirituals, there’s nothing that gets us more excited than history and music combined, so we are really looking forward to this year’s edition of the Harlem Jazz Shrines Festival. The Festival takes place in Harlem, New York, and celebrates the classic jazz clubs and venues that made Harlem the jazz Mecca of the 1920’s.
