March 12th, 2020 | Events in New York
March is here and New Yorkers are longing for the end of winter. This, in turn, means that colors, blooms and spring festivals are just around the corner. If you’re coming to New York in March or April, check out these events.
Thousands upon thousands of Irish immigrants arrived in New York in the 19th Century. As a result, their culture became ingrained in the city. Irish heritage is palpable today thanks to the remaining historical sites and descendants of the first immigrants from Ireland. This is one of the main reasons why the biggest St. Patrick’s Day parade in the world is in New York and not Ireland! It usually takes place along 5th Avenue, between 46th and 57th streets from 11am to 5pm. Do you want more Irish vibes? Check out where to eat, drink and party in NYC on St. Patrick's Day.
