Hello from NYC! I am a freelance writer and editor covering everything from travel to food. I've done work with big and small companies and love seeing projects come to life. In my free time I love exploring neighborhoods across all five boroughs and visiting other cities across the globe. Other favorite activities: bowling and trips to the beach.

Is there anything more romantic than strolling through Central Park, arm in arm with the love of your life? Pass under beautiful bridges, explore winding paths and pause to make a wish at the spectacular Bethesda Fountain.
For one of the most breathtaking views of New York, soar up via the sky shuttle to the indoor and outdoor observations decks on the 67th, 69th and 70th floors. All three levels boast special perks like panoramic glass and gift shops, plus fun activities like the Beam Walk, Breezeway and Radiance Wall. There's no better way to experience the iconic NYC skyline together.
For a romantic dinner that's hard to beat, book a table for two at the prestigious River Cafe. Not only is the cuisine here first-rate - offering gourmet twists on classic recipes - but the spectacular views of Manhattan along the East River are just as wonderful.
Head out into the New York Harbor aboard a 1929 schooner - a vessel so historic it's been declared a local floating landmark. This 82-foot yacht is the ideal deck from which to enjoy sweeping vistas of the city and the iconic Statue of Liberty.
When the High Line is in full bloom, it's a lush urban oasis and an ideal way to take a romantic stroll through one of the city's trendiest neighborhoods. There are plenty of wonderful views to enjoy along the route, as well as public art, local foodie pit-stops, and a few surprising nooks in which to enjoy a break with your loved one.
There are many fantastic bars in the city, but there is only one Bemelman's. This bar perfectly captures the old-world vibe of New York, complete with tasty cocktails, a live pianist, and a gorgeous interior with wrap-around mural and gold-leaf ceiling, creating an unforgettably romantic mood.
For an elegant night on the town, don your best outfits and join the well-heeled crowd of New Yorkers for a world-class opera experience. The Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center is world-renowned for its visually stunning shows and fabulously talented performers - a romantic treat not to be missed.
Nestled in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods of New York, is the ultimate walkway for an evening stroll. Perched amongst handsome brownstones and townhouses, this public park offers stunning views of the Downtown skyline, Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge.
For something a little different, head way uptown to the medieval museum and gardens known as The Cloisters. An offshoot of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, here you'll experience the ultimate tranquility as you roam the hallways and galleries filled with treasures from the Middle Ages.
You may not find much peace and quiet here, but for the best shellfish in the city - served up in a grand space that dates back over 100 years - it's hard not to impress your special someone on a date at this Oyster Bar. This bustling legend has been a fixture at Grand Central Terminal since it opened, and it's incredibly fresh selection of fish makes it worthy of its reputation.
