Our New York Spring Spectacular takes the magic of springtime in the Big Apple and puts it on stage. For instant access, we’ve taken the magic and put it on paper. Whether you’re a native New Yorker or a first-time visitor, we’ve rounded up four springtime “musts” that would be a shame to miss!

Scream For Ice Cream. Winter was all about eating ice cream under a blanket on the couch. Spring is all about meandering the city with a drippy cone in the sunshine. So much better, right? Especially, when the New York City ice cream scene is unbelievable! Order the Salty Pimp at Big Gay Ice Cream, the Ooey Gooey Butter Cake at Ample Hills Creamery, or the Cereal Milk™ soft serve at Milk Bar.

Tribeca Film Festival. Calling all movie buffs. The Tribeca Film Festival is 12 days of cinema bliss. If you’re more into celebrity sightings than cinema, grab some popcorn and stick around after the credits roll. Most screenings feature the director, writer and cast for a Q & A session.

Smorgasburg. Celebrate the start of spring by stuffing yourself silly at Smorgasburg, a mouthwatering outdoor food market in Brooklyn. Dulce de leche donuts, ramen burgers, spicy ginger slushies, and artisanal pickles are just a few of the unique offerings from the 100 vendors.

New York Spring Spectacular. Rockettes are leaving their reindeer costumes in the closet and Santa at the North Pole for a new show at Radio City Music Hall. A few stars join the cast as the magic of springtime in New York is celebrated on stage. Catch Laura Benanti, Derek Hough, and the Rockettes in the New York Spring Spectacular — now through May 7.
