On a day like today?
I’d probably walk to Columbus circle and up to Central Park. Maybe meet up with a couple friends and soak up the sun, people watch. Head to the MET, stay in the rooms with the most sun. Head back outside, window shop, avoid Broadway.

Get one of those Citi bikes and head south, go over the bridge. Buy one thing. If you’re there not on a Sunday, go to the Union Square Green market. Buy some lavender, tuck it into your back to give little bunches to your friends. Buy some veggies or fruit to snack on.
When the sun goes down, find a bar that has candles lit. Mother’s Ruin is great. Tom & Jerry’s. Or Marshall Stack. Or go to the Village East Cinema to see a film.
Stay out late, laugh a lot. Dance. Wake up smiling and craving a filling breakfast.
