Isn't that like a discover zone type thing? What do you do there on a date?

It's a arcade area for toddlers and young children  ;D

Used to have a ball pit and more climbing obstacles. There are people in costumes that perform songs for the kids and they serve food in a cafeteria type style (non-kosher)

1. Long Island Ferris wheel when it opens :)

2. Find a nice park( near the water or like south street seaport) and bring wine and wine glasses ( depending if you drink on dates)

Wife said circle line

Thoughts on minimum temperature to go? Can one go on a winter evening if it's say 30's or low 40's (like tomorrow night)?

Edit: Never mind. Not running in evening this time of year.

Which place is popular?

According to Yelp this one is a favorite: anyone try it? Other place?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Archery is difficult for girls because the Bow tends to be quite heavy.

Our favorite activity on dates was going to lounges and making other couples on dates feel awkward
