#4 City Island
Located in the Bronx over the City Island Bridge, there are great seafood restaurants to take your family or a loved one for a nice bite to eat. A short trip and a nice experience for all who are looking to let someone else do the cooking. Of course City Island restaurants are open all year but now is a great time to keep your oven off and your appetite on.
#5 Central Park
Central Park is one of the most beautiful parks and spacious grounds in New York City to take in the amazing Manhattan skyline and enjoy the amenities from Times Square which is in walking distance as well as Rockefeller Center.
