Spring is such a nice time to be in New York City. The days are lighter, the weather starts to get better and the cafes start to put tables back out on the pavement. It’s also the time of year when the city becomes a kaleidoscope of colors from all the flowers popping up.
By far the most popular flowers that pop up across the city are tulips. There seems to be plenty of other varieties of flowers but I’ve got no idea what they are called. I’ll leave that to the florists.
If you want to check out flowers then April is the best time of year. The ornamental garden in Central Park have a great display as well as Washington Square Park, The High Line and Abingdon Square in the West Village. If only the city was this colorful all year round.
