After the most brutal winter in the history of ever*, spring's arrival in NYC was utterly blissful. The warm weather! The blossom! The amazing events! Let's hear it for the warm weather again! Really, it's been a stunning springtime, and these spring photos show why. New Yorkers perused the blooms at Macy's Flower Show, hit the streets for the TD Five Boro Bike Tour, danced in the sun for the Holi Party and yes—frolicked among the cherry blossoms with sheer delight. Check out NYC in spring here, and watch the city heat up before your eyes!
