Central Park isn’t technically a gay bar, or even a gay establishment, but on the second Sunday of every month in the summer, it might as well be. During “Second Sundays,” Sheep Meadow becomes packed almost exclusively with gay men in a good mood. It’s a relaxed and extremely informal congregation. Bring a blanket, play frisbee with some friends, or use this opportunity to run into someone you’ve DM’d. You’ll also most certainly feel overdressed, no matter how little you’re wearing.

The Smith Lincoln Center
That's right, another Infatuation review for yet another location of The Smith. Why? Because The Smith is always there when you need it to be. Sometimes for the food. Sometimes for the bathroom. Either way, it's there, and it's good.
Marlow Bistro is an Italian restaurant on the Upper West Side that feels like the setting of a first date scene from a 90s romantic comedy.
Community Food & Juice
Community Food & Juice is one of the best brunch spots around Morningside Heights and Columbia University. Unfortunately, that's exactly when it's at its worst. Hit it any other time for best results.
