8 NYC Places To Tell Someone You Love Them

For the first time, or the millionth time.

Not knowing stuff is something we all deal with, at varying frequency and times of day. It could be something to do with work, your health, or it could be that pop culture reference you definitely did not recognize but laughed at anyways.

Not knowing is a stressful aspect of life. But (silver lining coming), it makes finally knowing all the more satisfying and beautiful. I’m a firm believer that we can all get to know the stuff we don’t know by asking questions, doing research, reading (crazy, I know). But, there’s something about knowing easily and without thought that is really the magical part of existing. And that knowing usually comes with human-to-human connection.

Probably one of the most infuriating cliches of all time is “you know when you know” when it comes to matters of the heart. Infuriating, because we’ve all been with people who we wanted to say that about, but really, in good conscience, could not. And the total opposite of infuriating when we are with the right person, and we do know. As the annoyingly-positive voice on the tape in the episode entitled “Luke Can See Her Face” of Gilmore Girls so masterfully put it:

“Whose phone calls or visits are never unwanted or too long? Do you see their face? When you're in pain, who would you most like to comfort you? Do you see their face? When something wonderful happens in your life, who do you want to share the news with? Do you see their face? Whose face appears to you, my friend? Whose face?

Ten years later, these questions are the gifts that keep on giving. Ask yourself, and know. And so to my person, I just want to say, sometimes idk, but all the time, I know about you. That’s a lot of commas, a lot of truth, and a lot of love right there. Share this with the one you know about.

This is our round-up of the most romantic places in New York City to let your love flag fly high, in no particular order. Also, maybe just tell them in the morning over coffee. That's a perfect way, too.


01

Under the Washington Square Park Arch

01

Go at night, after just having left the super romantic Zinc Bar in the West Village. I could be biased (this was my exact first date), but this is sure to be an incredible moment. What's more romantic than water cascading from a fountain, romantic live jazz music, and a Parisian-inspired arch all lit up?

02

Bow Bridge in Central Park

Bow Bridge in Central Park

Central Park is automatically romantic, but there's something about this white, cast-iron bridge that feels truly cinematic. Bow Bridge was built between 1859 and 1862, and was inspired by the bow of an archer or violinist. Isn't love kind of like shooting arrows with the music of a single violin in the background? Great, found our spot.

03

The Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge

It may seem like this is just a list of places outdoors with impressive architecture — but whatever, we couldn't leave the Brooklyn Bridge off this list. If for no other reason than it's where Miranda and Steve met back up and told each other they were ready to love each other again. Crying.


04

La Lanterna di Vittorio

04

Telling someone you love them after you feed them a delicious meal is pretty much always a great idea. And there's strong potential that wine is involved, which makes everyone feel more cozy. La Lanterna has a dreamy backyard garden with probably the best lighting in all of New York. We even made a whole evening around it.

05

Lincoln Center Fountain

Lincoln Center Fountain

You can't help but feel like you're living out your own New York opera when you stand in the middle of Lincoln Center by its stunningly lit central fountain. Go and be blown away by a performance, and then blow your person away with your love.

06

Knave at Le Parker Meridien

Knave at Le Parker Meridien

We might be coffee snobs, but there's something about telling someone you love them in the bright light of day over coffee that feels very authentic. So if you want your person to know that you mean business, tell them in a place as beautiful and royal as you feel they are, like The Knave in the Le Parker Meridien hotel.

07

La Bonbonniere

07

Similar to the above thought, consider telling your person you're cuckoo over them in a "lovable dump" like La Bonbonniere in the West Village. The food is dynamite, and the prices are straight out of Montana (or basically anywhere other than NYC). Grab one of their little tables outside, whether it's cold, hot, or anywhere in between, and lay it on them.

08

In The Back Of A Taxi

In The Back Of A Taxi

There's nothing more iconic than a New York City yellow cab. Hop in one on the way to whatever place means something to you both, squeeze their hand, and let them know how you feel.
