NYC weather: What to do when it warms up

After months of cold, at least one blizzard and a whole lot of downright gloomy weather, New Yorkers are finally warming up.

“I’m going to run in Central Park for the first time in six months,” said Jon-Marc McDonald, 39, a publicist from Washington Heights.

Craig Ortiz, 46, of the West Village, said New Yorkers should utilize the various open spaces in the city when they can.

“We’re so lucky in New York because there are so many places to go and get out. It’s an exciting time of year,” he said Monday while taking in some fresh air at Pier 45. “You have to pick your serenity spots.”
