April has arrived and with it (hopefully soon) Spring.
We all know that the Winter tends to drag on in the city, but when April finally arrives it usually set pretty much the arrival of Spring and long, pleasant days.
It also means that NYC will soon be adorned by colorful Tulips, red popping Cherry Blossoms, Pink & White Magnolias and more ... Let's be honest, nothing beats NYC in the Spring!
Now is the perfect time to walk outside and enjoy the streets of New York. You can actually eat in one of the outdoor cafe admiring the bustling city-sidewalks.
