Ooo…well NYC has all kinds of awesome things to do.  

The first thing that comes to my mind is the Conservatory Garden in Central Park (105th and 5th Avenue).  It’s really beautiful, espepcially in the Spring time (which seems to be when you’ll be here).  It’s also far up enough in the park to not be super touristy.

Unrelated but also nice.,,Otto in the NYU area is a really good restaurant, very romantic, and really not too expensive.  It’s one of Mario Battali’s restaurant.  They have a huge wine selection which can make the meal pricier, but the food is really pretty good and really affordable.  

I know there’s more things, though I’m drawing a blank right now.  I’m sure there will be many other people with good suggestions though.  🙂

I second the recommendation for Otto!  Delicious!  One if By Land Two if By Sea in the West Village is v.v. romantic.  The Cloisters is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  With its medieval art collection & beautiful gardens, it’s like a little slice of Europe in Manhattan.  If you are a cupcake fan, there’s always Magnolia Bakery, but also check out Billy’s in Chelsea & Crumbs (Crumbs are all over the city).  Pommes Frites on 2nd Avenue serves nothing but Belgian fries & they have about 20 different kinds of dipping sauces.  You can make a meal out of a small order alone.  If the weather’s nice, it’s fun to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.  You’re going to have such a blast in the Big Apple!

Check out The High Line!  http://www.thehighline.org/

 

Brooklyn Botanic Gardens is amazing…you will find yourself wondering how you are possibly in New York while you’re there.

I think an afternoon in Brooklyn is totally fun…boutiques, neighborhood feel, a little quirky.

@Jeannine @ Small Chic: On a personal note, I’m glad to hear you’re recommending the High Line.  I’m going to be there again next week & already have that on my “to do” list!

Hmm here are a few other suggestions:

Top of the Rock

Central Park–take a rowboat out on the lake (hopefully the weather will be warm enough!)

Go to Di Fara in Brooklyn for pizza (best in the city)

Walk across the brooklyn bridge

Definitely check out the Highline

Go over to Riverside Park on the UWS and eat dinner at Pier I or the Boat Basin

Have drinks/dinner at Robert (restaurant at the top of the Museum of Art and Design) or the Modern (restaurant/bar in the MoMA)
