New York City is a special place, and it’s known as the Capital of the World for many reasons. It is famous for many many things and is rightfully at the top of places for tourists to visit.
However, one thing NYC is definitely not famous for is romance. People consider NYC to be cold and detached, and the people living there even more so. They say NYC is the city of cheap one night stands, Tinder hookups and semi-anonymous booty calls, and that romance can actually offend someone here!
Others, however, would beg to differ. The first thing to keep in mind is that NYC is a massive place and it’s not exactly uniform. Many people’s NYC experience is confined to student life there, which is definitely not the typical New Yorker’s experience of the city, for good or bad. And people who are tourists or students honestly don’t understand what the city is about. NYC is so much more than just Manhattan below 96th Street and a few neighborhoods just inside Brooklyn.
Let’s be straight up here: businesses like this roses New York business would not even exist if there weren’t a steady stream of clients. People are spending money in droves for these beautiful flowers and chocolates etc. because they see value in it. We can’t exactly comment on the success rate of these individuals because there is absolutely no data present, but if it never worked, people would stop buying. In a New York minute.
Want some more proof that New York has a romantic side to it? Take two or three days off (one really isn’t enough time), and make yourself go on a tour of NYC’s spectacular parks. You will see that side of the city, a side maybe you had been taking for granted, or didn’t even know existed. Just for fun’s sake and for variety’s, leave Central Park out of this. Hit Riverside Park, Fort Tryon Park, Van Cortlandt, Prospect Park, and if it’s that time of year, check out New York City’s seven urban beaches. You will start to see what I’m talking about.
So if you find yourself in New York City and you’re the romantic type, don’t despair. There is a story that fits the city and can still fit you at the same time. It’s out there, and often all you have to do to let it in is simply stop denying its existence!
