Winter, or whatever is left of it, is season where days are spent sipping hot cup of coffee and nights are spent cuddling. And we say hello to spring, NYC has some winter-y and outdoorsy stuff for you to still do, if you can brave the cool wind. And if you are with your special someone, where else would you want to be? New York can bring out little stories of with its mighty charm.
Start by watching an early morning sunrise from Newport
With the clouds hovering above, sun is a very rare sight. But watching the sun coming over a slight hue of orange and the Manhattan skyline standing tall and proud, it is a sight from another world. If you can’t think of a better way, Newport is perfect for you. The Boardwalk that starts from the PATH station can be your spot to jog and experience the radiance of NYC.
Take a walk down the Brooklyn Bridge
Although, this walk is not seasonal, doing it at the onset of spring when it’s not too hot, not too cold is the equivalent of perfection. The symmetry, the reflections, the little locks on its side, the view- all are testament to the beauty this 1880s monument is. You could catch sight of the skyline, and far away in the distance stands the glory and pride of the free America- Lady Liberty. Make sure you carry a lock if you want an everlasting bond with you and your partner! *wink*
Take a stroll in Central Park
Central Park is the place you go to if you want to witness life in New York. And I literally mean LIFE. Between the concrete jungle and busy schedule, there’s not much time to stop and look around. In here, you can. You will find couples strolling, or a bunch of friends goofing around, you might also come across one or two Mozarts in the making. There’s just so much to do in Central Park.
Ice Skate on the Wollman Rink (Open till April)
Feed the Squirrels- you would be surprised at how bold and beautiful they are.
Feed the ducks- You can always follow the footsteps of Blair from Gossip Girl.
Or… just laze around and sunbathe- Take a pause, stop for a moment and just enjoy!
Because let’s face it. We might curse winter as much as we can, but it’s still the most romantic, beautiful and cosy season of all. And as we welcome spring, we can nothing but cherish the last few cool days!
