Spring is coming to New York City… even if the temperatures are still low!! No worries, March and April are great periods to visit the city, with a lot of diverse events!
March and April weather in New York:
Average High: March: 10°C (50°F) //// April: 16°C (60°F)
Average Low: March: 2°C (35°F) //// April: 7°C (44°F)
March has a tendency to be rainy, but for the most part, temperatures stay above freezing. There is an average of 10 cm of precipitation in March.
April tends to have more precipitation, but the temperatures are warmer, therefore, making your stay more enjoyable.
Besides, it’s the beginning of spring which implies the season of beautiful blossoming trees and gorgeous tulips planted by gardeners in Central Park and green landscapes throughout NYC. I personally think that April is one of the best times to visit New York.

The real good tips of March – April in New York:
Just like January and February, the month of March is the calmest before the big rush of April-May-June and especially summertime (July-August). Therefore, take advantage and travel during that time frame particularly if you want to enjoy a warmer climate than the winter season from November through February.
April is the ideal time to visit Central Park and watch the flowers and wildlife coming back to life and most importantly be able to take amazing pictures!!!
Cultural events in New York City in March- April
St Patrick’s Day is enthusiastically celebrated on March 17, 2023, by all New Yorkers in crowded Irish pubs. Please note that the parade will take place on March 17!
St Patrick’s Day is a religious and cultural holiday from the Republic of Ireland and is widely celebrated by descendants of Irish immigrants with a visit to St Patrick’s cathedral and a parade in the streets of Manhattan.
In Broadway Plaza, outside the iconic department store Macy’s, you’ll find incredible floral arrangements.
Inside the store, it will be a real flower show with maybe more flowers than clothing 🙂
The event features live music, kid’s activities, and seminars… The free event will take place from March 26 to April 10.
The famous Coney Island amusement park will open on March 31 on the weekends. It opens every day later in the year. But if you want to spend a sunny day by the beach, Luna Park can be a great option.
On April 9, 2023, you will have the opportunity to see the City of New York’s Easter day Parade.
The parade marches on 5th avenue between 49th and 57th streets.
The best tip to enjoy the parade is around St Patrick’s Cathedral area. It’s the ideal spot to see the parade which takes place between 10 am and 4 pm.
This particular Sunday is a synonym for spring. It‘s the day when New Yorkers wear their best attires and walk the streets on their way to church. You’ll notice their different choices of clothing: costumes, couture gowns, and a lot of flower hats for the girls.
