It’s officially Spring in New York City but the weather outside has been telling us otherwise. In a matter of one week we saw 70 degrees and sunshine then 10 degrees and a snowstorm with everything in between. Albeit, don’t let the sometimes gloomy weather get you down. Rental deals are blooming and make sure to snatch incredible NO FEE deals we offer daily. The warmer weather will be here shortly and before you know it, we’ll be complaining about the heat. Here are some fun activities to do this Spring. Check out the links at the bottom of the page for further info.
New York City has tons of parks and none more greater than Central Park. Most weekends you can find some sort of organized activity planned in the park. The city hosts numerous concerts (some free but most require a paid ticket for entrance) throughout Spring and Summer. Each weekend you will most likely see some sort of organized running/walking event. The AIDS Walk NYC and NY Road Runners to name a couple. For those of you with dogs, Central Park allows dog owners to let their friendly K-9’s off leash from 6-9 am everyday day. It’s also a great place to take a packed lunch and eat in the park on one of many grassy fields. Don’t feel like walking? Not a problem. Just flag down a pedi-cab and they’ll stroll you around the park while at the same time filling your head with tidbits about the local sites.
Manhattan is a large island and sometimes getting around in an simple and quick fashion isn’t easy. Cramming yourself into one of the subway trains when the weather is nice isn’t necessarily the most fun thing to do. For those who want to see this vast city on their own terms, they can use one of the hundreds of Citi bikes located throughout all of NYC. For only a few bucks you can rent a bike and when you want to stop to check out a restaurant or some other attraction simply return the bike to any of the bike stations that have an open stall. When you’re ready to hop back on, grab a bike and go. A word to the wise, when riding your bike in the street keep your head on a swivel.
The most iconic attraction in New York, and the country, is Lady Liberty. There are plenty of companies that will take you out on a Statue of Liberty cruise and I’m sure they’re wonderful. But they do cost money. If you want to avoid forking over some hard earned cash, you can take the Staten Island Ferry for free. You cruise right past the Statue and once you arrive to the terminal on Staten Island, you can get off and wander around there or hop right back on the next ferry destined for Manhattan.
Looking for some cultural in the city? NYC has plenty of musuems to offer; MoMA, Guggenheim, American Museum of Natural History and so on. Hours and fees for each of these museums differ depending on the time of year and day of the week. Many museums offer special deals if you’re able and willing to plan a little in advance. Some even offer free days or “pay what you can” days. No matter the topic you’re interested in leaning a little more about, New York most likely has a museum for it.
