Spring in New York City

NYC Taxi Spring

April is a glorious month in New York City, making it the perfect time for a trip. One must-see activity is admiring the cherry blossoms. These stunning flowers attract crowds every spring from all over the world, offering a fleeting yet breathtaking display of beauty. From Central Park to New York Botanical Gardens, there are numerous spots throughout the city to marvel at these delicate pink blooms.

 We have put together a short list of some of our favourite spots to admire the colours of spring, some close and some a short distance away from the hotel. Our Concierge at the hotel will be delighted to help in organising your day with you in the city!


                                                                            Central Park

Begin your exploration with Central Park, a stone's throw away from The Lowell, showcasing cherry blossoms along the bridal path at 90th Street, East Drive at 66th Street, the Boathouse at 74th Street, the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, and Cherry Hill at 72nd Street. Appreciate the enchanting view of these blossoms near Belvedere Castle, adding a touch of magic to the already majestic castle and end the day with a picnic in Central Park organised by our team.

                                                                           Little Island

Little Island is a destination that is definitely worth visiting. Although it may require a journey, the experience of witnessing the beauty of spring flowers at Little Island is truly remarkable and a unique experience. Little Island opened in 2021 and is a relatively newer attraction in the city hence a must visit. It promises a delightful display of nature's wonders. As you explore the island, you will be greeted by the enchanting sight of Akebono Yoshino cherry trees blooming in harmony with daffodils, tulips, lilies, pasque flowers, and numerous other flowers.

                                                                    New York Botanical Garden

The New York Botanical Garden covers 50 acres and is famous for housing some of the oldest trees, such as a range of cherry blossoms. There are more than 200 flowering cherry trees in the garden, bringing a pop of pink and white to the beautiful scenery. You can explore the Cherry Collection along the meandering trail for a stunning variety of cherries.  The New York Botanical Garden also offer Spring classes for those of you who are passionate about your gardens and would like some extra tips and tricks up your sleeve.
