Now that we’re well into the summer season…I want to continue making a case for visiting New York in the spring. Summer has a lot of perks (like music festivals), but spring’s peaceful. Everything’s less crowded!
I could really tell the difference in Central Park. In the summer, it’s packed to capacity. In the spring, there’s plenty of wiggle-room for everyone.
Take the area around Bethesda Fountain as an example:
In the summer, this lake is PACKED with boats, and everyone else bustles around the fountain. It’s much quieter in the spring.
And do I even need to mention the weather? If you’re not afraid of getting rained on every now and then, spring can be lovely. New York summers are so hot. There are relatively few water fountains in Central Park, so that can get really taxing after a while.
I didn’t edit any of these photos, so you can see how cloudy it gets in the spring. Perfect strolling weather, in my opinion.
Thanks for reading,
