The transformation of NYC from the back and white of winter to the glorious colours of Spring is a magical process. And this year more than ever. The tulips on Park Avenue are so iridescent you can hardly believe they are real, and the cherry blossom lining the Avenues and filling Central Park make breathing a scented pleasure. Some blossom can’t even wait for the branches to grow. These few precious weeks make you forget winter and forgive the intense humidity that is to come. It’s all worth it just for the spectacle.
