Forget Macy’s!

There were more bird watchers than blossoms in Central Park on the weekend, but reports that crocuses had been spotted in the Conservatory Gardens brought just as much joy. With snowbells, these miniature marvels promise Spring. While the rest of the garden is rehearsing and wrangling for position, clusters of crocuses emerge out of the mulch, signaling the raising of the curtain. In the north east corner of the Park at 105th and 5th avenue, these gardens are a considerable distance from Broadway, but will soon have a full house with soaring wisteria vines, thousands of tulips, magnolia trees and cherry blossom. Monet himself would be jealous. The spectacle is only just starting, so whatever else you have on your list, if you are in NYC in April, don’t miss this show for the world…

    What will I pack for my visit starting from April 20?

    • Mary you don’t need a coat or boots anymore, but definitely a jacket that you can throw on & off and good walking shoes. The humidity makes the cooler temperatures feel comfortable so long sleeved shirts will be perfect. Just be assured ( if you haven’t been here before ) that casual is the name of the game!
