Between events like the famous St. Patrick’s Day Parade and other seasonal favorites, there’s quite a bit to choose from. Macy’s Flower Show will certainly get you excited for the arrival of warmer weather; so will The Armory Show at Piers 92/94; Asia Week New York; and Lincoln Center’s New Directors/New Films, now in its 44th year. New and noteworthy events include the New York Public Library’s exhibition Sinatra: An American Icon, a look into the life and career of Ol’ Blue Eyes that commemorates what would have been his 100th birthday; a full-scale retrospective of Björk’s work at MoMA; and the reinstallation of the Arts of Nepal and Tibet galleries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. On the music front, don’t miss Debbie Harry’s residency at Cafe Carlyle on the Upper West Side or Neil Diamond’s show at Barclays Center.
