Last week we would have shared the best events happening in New York City this April. But from this month forward, we will share our list of MUST-ATTEND events every week. We have been listening to your feedback. Some of you shared that when we transmit such an in-depth list of events, quite a number are lost because the list is too long.
So from this week, every Tuesday, we will share the best events happening in the week ahead.
Here are the Best Events Happening in New York City this April.
Today we are sharing events happening in New York City from April 12 through 19.
