April brings many spring favorites back to New York City, including the Tribeca Film Festival, Hanami: Cherry Blossom Viewing at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Street Games in Harlem. New this year are some truly one-of-a-kind and thrilling events such as WrestleMania at MetLife Stadium, Alicia Keys performing at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and the return of the Dance Theatre of Harlem to NYC for the first time in nine years. Speaking of firsts, the Mets and Yankees are also making history, holding their home openers on the same day and at the same time for the first time ever. And, as usual, the City's art exhibitions never disappoint—view 93 stunning watercolor pieces in John Singer Sargent Watercolors at the Brooklyn Museum, and see the witty and profound interpretations of everyday objects in Claes Oldenburg: The Street and The Store.
