Lots of street fairs and craft shows are starting up soon – always a good sign that warmer weather is around the corner.
The Spring Craft on Columbus is one of my favorites. It takes place on the sidewalk next to the American Museum of Natural History on Columbus Avenue from 77th to 81st Street. Rows and rows of tents with great crafts, from ceramics to jewelry. Each weekend about 100 artisans exhibit and sell their own work.
