  • The Promenade has the most spectacular, and most romantic, panorama of Manhattan and the harbor layed out before it. At this point in my life, it's an old and dear acquaintance, but one that I'm always eager to introduce a new boyfriend to. Decent food and drinks nearby, and a fun place to make out....
  • Wonderful spot in the city. One of the best views of Manhattan. Incredibly romantic place to amble along or relax on a bench. Considering the promenade is ultimately just a clever way to hide the ugly Brooklyn-Queens Expressway underneath, it makes the space that much more special.
