Things to Do in NYC This Spring

The hint of warmer temperatures and the blossoming of spring blooms fills us with excitement, as we replace our winter wear with lighter spring layers. We remain just as thrilled to explore the seasonal activities our Concierge team has recommended for us this season.


Located in the heart of New York Harbor, Governors Island is a 172-acre island that is only a ferry ride away from Manhattan. While the island is open all year round, it really starts to come to life in the spring as Liggett Terrance begins to bloom. The season begins with fun events such as the Governor Island Walking Tour and the NYC Runs Spring Fling 5k & 10K. There is also a fun Easter egg hunt in April to celebrate the holiday. Don’t forget to check out the public art on display around the island in various mediums.

Perelman Performing Arts Center (PAC)

Now thru March 31st, 2024, enjoy Laurence Fishburne’s legendary storytelling skills at PAC in his new one-man show “Like They Do in The Movies”.

GRAND BANKS- Floating Oyster Bar

Enjoy sustainably harvested oysters, nautically inspired cocktails and seafood on a docked boat. This floating oyster bar opens Mid-April and is only a few minutes away from the Beekman. Reservations recommended for this seasonal treasure!


Take a stroll through the Japanese Cherry Blossom Orchard, and take in the pop of beauty that has blossomed all around us.
