Spring's arrival brings the first days of baseball season, a week in which the City celebrates design and a general move toward events that are held outdoors. Start the season off right with Mets and Yankees home openers in Queens and the Bronx, respectively. Enjoy even more of the outdoors with events like Hanami: Cherry Blossom Viewing at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, a true feast for the eyes, or by taking part in the TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour, either on two wheels or as a spectator. Other notable events include new exhibitions Gauguin: Metamorphoses at MoMA and Charles James: Beyond Fashion in the newly renovated Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Plus, don't miss the City's own Tribeca Film Festival, now in its 13th year.
