It goes without saying that New York City is one of the most romantic cities in the world—there are so many “right places” to seal a kiss with your sweetie. From under the Radio City Music Hall marquee to the Strawberry Fields in Central Park, fall head over heels with these 10 smooch-worthy iconic spots in NYC to share a first kiss:
On a boat ride by the Statue of Liberty. Hop on an official cruise or take the free Staten Island Ferry for amazing views as you pass by the statue. Fresh air and a historic landmark set the mood for a memorable first kiss.
Anywhere in the New York Public Library. Escape the noise of Midtown and steal away into the quiet and vast halls of one of New York’s most famous libraries. Lock lips in one of the grand halls, or tucked away in the stacks.
Waiting in line at your favorite bagel place. They tend not to be the most romantic spots in the city, which is why we think it’s perfect for a casual and sweet first kiss. You know the bagels are good when the line is out the door—sneak in a smooch as you wait to order (before you have bagel breath!).
Walking over the Brooklyn Bridge. Traversing this famous bridge is almost a rite of passage for both New Yorkers and tourists alike. Take your date on a stroll over the water, stop midway and get that kiss.
Under the marquee of Radio City Music Hall. OK, maybe we’re a little biased, but few places convey New York glamour quite like Radio City Music Hall. Stop under the pink, blue and yellow lights of the marquee for a historic first kiss.
As you hail a taxi. What’s more New York than the classic yellow taxi? As you hail one after a promising date, steal a smooch right before you get in.
In the hustle and bustle of Grand Central Terminal. With hundreds of people coming and going, there’s a hurried and urgent feel in the air. Share a standstill smooch in the midst of the chaos.
At an outdoor movie in Prospect Park. Head to Brooklyn to catch a free movie in the great outdoors. Pack a blanket, a few snacks and let the chemistry brew.
At Central Park’s Strawberry Fields. This tranquil memorial to John Lennon, found in Central Park, emanates what Lennon stood for: peace. Perfect for a quiet and thoughtful first kiss.
At the Empire State Building observatory. It may seem cliché, but there’s a reason this spot is so popular for romance in NYC. Taking in the stunning views with a special someone will leave you breathless and excited at the same time. Lean in…
