The popularity of New York’s magnificent playground soars in April and May; the trees have completed their journey from bare to vivid green, and the cherry blossoms peak. But even in early March, when the winter colors still prevail and signs of Spring are negligible, the Park begins to fill with visitors from every corner of the world. It is then up to the spirited and creative NY street performers to ease the city’s visitors into the “New York state of mind” that they’ve traveled here to experience. They’ll miss the cherry blossoms, but no one is complaining.
