As the snow melts, the spring energy begins to inspire New Yorkers to get outside. While Upper East Side condos may have provided the perfect holiday den for the last three months, the budding trees signal that it’s time to explore.
Here are a few activities to enjoy this spring near our Upper East Side condos.
Hang Out in Central Park
Nothings says “spring” like Central Park. Green grass, flowers, trees beginning to sprout leaves, and air warm enough to have a picnic – Central Park is a hub of activity in the warmer months.

Since the park is just 10 blocks from 40 East End’s luxury Manhattan condominiums, be sure to add some of its spring and summer events to your social calendar.
Shop at Open-Air Markets
A journey to the local farmer’s market is a wonderful way to pass a sunny Saturday morning. While many are, in fact, open year-round, spring to fall is when these marketplaces are buzzing.

Others neighborhood markets include East 67th Street and 79th Street markets, both excellent resources for local products.
Have a Pint on a Patio
