15 Romantic Anniversary Ideas in NYC

If you’ve had a special someone in your life for quite some time, you might be interested to know about romantic anniversary ideas in NYC.

I can imagine anniversaries are a tricky time. There’s a lot of pressure to come up with the right kind of date and way to celebrate that captures the same spark as you had at the beginning of the relationship. The only anniversary I’ve ever celebrated is the anniversary of my birth, and it’s never that exciting, so I really can’t relate to most of these options. However, I’m thinking about doing some of these activities with my friends just for fun. Regardless of whether or not you have a special romantic relationship to celebrate, the concept of anniversary activities is universal, and there’s no one out there who is going to enforce that you can only go to a super fancy restaurant on a special anniversary occasion. You can go on a Wednesday evening with your best friend. I won’t judge.
