Whether you want to watch the sunrise over the East River at Sutton Square Park like Woody and Diane or enjoy a Cary Grant/Deborah Kerr moment at the top of the Empire State Building, New York is a city for lovers, and In Love In New York guides the reader to the most romantic sights and destinations the city has to offer. The book begins with "first impressions", the iconic NY sights that dazzle no matter how many times you see them: the skyline (and the best places to view it), the most beautiful blocks and neighborhoods, the famous views (rooftops, bridges, riverside parks). Then there is the seduction of the classics, from the balcony of Lincoln Center at Met Opera intermission to dinner at the River Cafe; from the row boats and carriage rides of Central Park; from a stroll on the Brooklyn Heights promenade to dinner at La Grenouille. There are great date ideas, including a list of "destination museums" and great dinner-and-a-movie-theater combinations, as well as unexpected romantic day trips within and close by the five boroughs. For those ready to commit, there will be information about the legal requirements for getting married here, as well as a list of the best proposal spots, where to go ring shopping, register, and try on dresses -as well as the best places to get flowers near City Hall, and where to eat afterwards. Also included are the best places to celebrate honeymoons and anniversaries. Throughout great sidebars feature such romantic shorthand as a list of bars with fireplaces, great New York literary and film affairs, the prettiest park benches, and the best places to shop for romantic gifts.
