Dating in Central Park offers a variety of choices, ranging from formal dinner to secluded picnics. You can take a walk along any number of scenic routes, discover hidden gems scattered throughout the landscape, go ice skating or rowing, or even relax and listen to a sunset concert. Just entering the park, leaving the jostling throngs and clogged streets behind you, makes the experience special; unique in a city fairly drowning in sensual wonders. While there is a certain sense of achievement inherent in securing a romantic table for two in a darkened restaurant it pales in comparison to the shared sense of discovery and relaxed intimacy that accompanies a stroll through the park. In a Manhattan restaurant you can convince yourself you’ve left the city behind, in Central Park, almost before you become aware of the subtle transition, the city leaves you.
