What to Do in New York this Spring

March 7th, 2019 | Events

March is here and New Yorkers are longing for the end of winter. Recent rain may signal the beginning of spring showers. 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.

St. Patrick’s Day in New York

Thousands upon thousands of Irish immigrants arrived to 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!

St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Date: March 16, 2019 from 11am to 5pm
Parade Route: 5th Avenue, between 46th and 57th streets.
