While the city and its suburbs have a lot of great places to offer during the day, the best part about NYC is just how much more fun things become once the lights go out.Here are New York City's most romantic summer date spots, whether you're on your first date or your thirtieth.1.
So if you’re looking for some unbeatable NYC date ideas, you’ve come to the right place.
With the New York classics as well as some more creative date suggestions, here’s how to ensure a memorable time with someone special. Many Americans intend to walk the High Line but never actually get round to it. The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets of Manhattan’s West Side and provides some magnificent views.
Although the majority of my dates have been in dark bars somewhere in the Lower East Side (that's what you get when you date poor artists), there were some dates I've had that evoked that fleeting feeling of, "Wow.
I want this moment to last forever." And then forever was over 90 minutes later.
And, it's right near the High Line, so a romantic stroll on the linear park post-drinks is a must. Try out this charming, French Quarter-esque spot with an indoor bar and outdoor patio. There's dollar-an-oyster happy hour and an absinthe fountain.
If you're coming from Manhatthan, take the East River Ferry over to Brooklyn for a nice, New York breeze.
And the best part is, the more money you spend out there, the more you're contributing to bringing the Rockaways back to life. Before you roll your eyes, hear me out on this one.
As a New Yorker, I loathe tourist attractions just as much as you do. On a steamy night, there's nothing better than 102 stories above the sweaty city below to check out the views.
Every Monday at sunset, Bryant Park comes alive with an free outdoor movie.
Grab a blanket, some snacks and your date (OK, maybe some wine hidden in a water bottle too), and cozy up on the grass to classics like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and E. This basement bar in Chelsea Market has deliciously strong drinks and a dark, relaxed atmosphere, so you'll have no problem getting comfy with your guy during happy hour.
Since we only have a few months of this weather before the winter hits, it's a shame to spend every date inside a bar somewhere.
