Spring has Sprung in the Big Apple

Friday, April 17, 2009

The Yankees enjoyed a rain-free home opener yesterday, and the promenade of the Brooklyn Bridge was filled with people soaking up the sun and the skyline.

REPORTER: Brooklyn's Pat Grave says shedding the heavy coat is better than taking St. John's Wart.

GRAVE: When the spring is here, you know your mood elevates - you're not as depressed as you was - nothing bothers you as it would if the train was crowded or anything like that're much more happier. I'm going to do some gardening when I get home.

REPORTER: And Manhattan's Scott Lehman says it feels like it's been a long wait.

LEHMAN: I'm glad its finally here, it took a long time but the sun's out today, its a beautiful day, when the sun is out, everyone puts a smile on their face.

REPORTER: Sunny skies are also in the forecast for today and tomorrow.
