1st of April last year we had light snow flurrys and quite cold weather for the next 2 weeks , yes there was some rain be nothing to stop us getting out and about exploring the city. Just enough to cancel the Yankees's game .....GGGRRR.

If you are coming from a warmer climate you may feel the cold more , but buildings etc are ussually well heated so , layer up so you can remove coats or jumpers inside.

Weather is unpredictable, but it is highly unlikely that it will rain every day. NYC does not have rainy and dry seasons - it can rain at any time of the year. On average, it rains once every 3 days in April, but this is not a guarantee of anything -- you could have a week of sun or (much less likely) a week of rain.

The Wikipedia entry for New York City contains a table showing that the average number of days in April with precipitation is 11.5. So, on average, fewer than half of April days in New York City will have precipitation.

April being more rainy than other months is a myth. For temperature it can be chilly or somewhat mild.

April is when we tend to visit (so excited about coming back this year!) and have experienced a huge variety of weather. Everything from snow the year we got married (thankfully the day before) to warm, short wearing sunny weather perfect for sitting in the park when we visited in 2010. Think this was quite unusual though! Always makes packing the suitcase that bit trickier! Majority of trips we have had a real mix with some lovely days some rain and some chilly days. Regardless you will have a great time :)
