April 27, 2016

When our guests are looking for NY Things to Do during a stay at our Manhattan Hotel, we are happy to tell them about some of the many popular options. Whatever your interests, you will find NYC Activities that will make your visit to New York City special. Below are 7 examples of top NYC Activities for spring visitors.

See a Yankees Game
Yankee Stadium | 1 East 161st Street Bronx, NY 10451
Batter up! For baseball fans, spring is a favorite time of year. Yankee Stadium will be filled with cheering fans who come to watch their favorite team (hopefully) move one step closer to the World Series with every game. While it is possible to get last-minute tickets, some games will sell out in advance, so it is a good idea to buy your tickets in advance.

Stroll Through Brooklyn Botanical Gardens
990 Washington Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11225
Tel: 718.623.7200
With blooms coloring Central Park and other nearby greenspaces, you will have a few good choices when searching for a place to enjoy the spring flowers. Brooklyn Botanical Gardens is a lovely option, and the gorgeous cherry blossoms alone are worth a visit to this NYC Attraction.

Take a Carriage Ride
While carriage rides are available all year – and each season has their charm – enjoying this NYC Activity in the spring gives you a chance to do so when the weather is ideal and the first blooms have started to add color to the City. It’s a good idea to reserve your carriage ride in advance, but last minute openings may be available.

Do Some People Watching
New Yorkers are out and about in spring more so than during the cold of winter, so your spring stay at our Manhattan Hotel is a perfect chance to do some people watching as you explore the City. Whether you find a spot at Central Park or just stroll around the City, you’ll find that there is no better place for people watching.

Take a Gondola Ride
You don’t have to go to Venice to enjoy a gondola ride. The Loeb Boathouse offers canoe rentals, but for those who want someone else to do the rowing, gondola rides are another option. Enjoy some time on the water and the lovely City views while your gondolier does all the work. Reservations can be made in advance.

Visit Top Attractions
What better time of year to explore Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, and other outdoor Attractions? Of course, visiting such spots are a top NY Thing to Do no matter the time of year, but during the spring you’ll have the advantage of lovely spring weather as well.

Dine Al Fresco
Outdoor dining isn’t a popular NYC Activity during the cold winter months but, once the warm of spring descends several Restaurants near our Manhattan Hotel offer al fresco dining. New York City boasts some of the best Restaurants in the country. During your spring stay enjoy a few meals in the lovely spring weather on a rooftop dining room or sidewalk café.
