New York City has a short spring season. March and April can be blustery and damp,
vestiges of winter that can't take a hint to get lost. Then comes May, with its
five temperate weekends, shirt sleeve weather and organized sports. One of the
joys of living in New York City is the extraordinary month of May. The meticulously planned New York World's Fair of 1939 opened April 30th to capture a full measure of New York's Maytime. By
mid-June, the park is lush green and in full anticipation of a long lazy summer, and if
New Yorkers get lucky, Indian Summer could linger until Christmas - nature balancing the
painfully short Spring.
