NYC in April: Events and Tips

We are leaving the winter behind and welcoming the flourishing energies of spring here in New York City.

Tips to visit NYC in April

If you’re planning a trip to NYC in April, take your favourite jacket with you as you will need it most days. April is a great time to enjoy the outdoors during the day as it’s not too hot or too cold. 

More precisely, temperatures reach 61F (16C) during the day and fall to 45F (7C) at night/early morning. There also will be refreshing rainy days. We recommend you to pack your luggage accordingly.
