Did you know that the Roosevelt Island Tram is the second most romantic spot in New York City according to the concierge at the Sofitel New York as reported by Travel Lady? Here are 5 of their top ten Most Romantic Spots in New York City.
Who better than a luxury French hotel to serve as the experts on romance for Valentine's Day? For this reason, the Sofitel New York enlisted its French concierge to get his seal of approval for the Ten Most Romantic Places in New York:
  1. The Poet's Walk at Central Park – Experience Central Park hand in hand along this idyllic tree-lined stretch of benches and broad walkway.

  2. The Roosevelt Island Tram – Couples soar high above the East River.

  3. Lincoln Center – When the lights go out, enjoy a kiss before the curtain rises and the magical sounds of the New York Philharmonic fill the air.

  4. Rockefeller Center – Ice skate across the world's most famous rink arm in arm with your valentine.

  5. Brooklyn Botanic Gardens – The "harmonious asymmetry" of the city's only Japanese Hill and Pond Garden has the perfect feel for that special romantic moment.
Where are you going with your Monkey for Valentine's Day?

Hat tip for the kissing monkey video goes to Michael Shermer of Skeptic Magazine. He showed the monkey kissing video during a presentation he gave on market psychology and its role in the current real estate downturn at last January's excellent and thought provoking 2008 Inman Real Estate Connect NYC Conference .
