It’s summer and shiny at NYC nowadays and what better way to start your summer New York adult dating activities than a picnic. NYC has the most interesting parks in the whole United States that is why, if ever you are planning to go to a Picnic with your date, you will never run out of Parks to go to. Here are some great places to plan a romantic and cheap picnic date in New York. The spots offer gorgeous views, cool things to do, and plenty of privacy for you and your sweetie.
Marvel at the view from Brooklyn Bridge Park
From any spot within this 85-acre space, you’re treated to stunning, romantic vistas of the skyline as well as the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. But there are plenty of other date-friendly attractions: Stroll hand in hand along the waterfront pathway around Pier 1 before stopping for a hot dog ($4) and a Sixpoint Bark Red Ale ($6) at Bark Hot Dogs’ rooftop concession stand at Pier 6
Sip beer in Battery Park
Bring a history-obsessed date to this downtown park: The space is full of remnants of the city’s past, from Castle Clinton (built in the early 19th century and intended to protect against the British army) to more than 20 statues honoring New York’s war veterans. After meandering through the expanse, kick back with drafts from the Victory Brewing Company (pint $5, pitcher $16) at the Battery Gardens Beer Garden.
Seek out hidden spots in Central Park
Begin a date in this bucolic space at the usual spots: Start with a walk along the Mall, the tree-lined promenade that leads to Bethesda Terrace and the lake. After pausing to take in the view, continue to a lesser-known area. We like the scenic, secluded Loch and the Ravine at the northern end of the park, which was designed to resemble the Adirondacks mountain range.
Find a peaceful respite in Fort Tryon Park
There are lots of quiet nooks where you can canoodle throughout this massive green space or if you don’t care about indulging in a little PDA, settle in on the popular Cloisters Lawn, which offers splendid views of the Hudson River and the New Jersey Palisades. Afterward, follow the signs to the Cloisters, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s medieval collection, and spend some time wandering around its gorgeous gardens.
Watch the Sunset at Guess Where? The Sunset Park
Before you dismiss a New York adult dating planned with the sole purpose of watching the sun set as cliche, trek to this Brooklyn spot. Not only does it feel removed from the bustle of the city, but perched atop its hill (one of the highest points in the borough), you can see landmarks like the Statue of Liberty especially gorgeous against the backdrop of a summer sunset.
