“Just a block away. There is a huge lawn, bring a blanket and some treats from Foragers Market, lay yourself out on it and soak up some rays while people watching. :)”
“TONS of old school arcade games in a bar setting. Great for dates or groups of friends.”

“My go-to when I have a hankering for classic Persian cuisine—kabobs, stews, and rice—and want leftovers to take home. It’s a great place for a long, leisurely lunch or a nice dinner in a refined atmosphere with linen tablecloths, low lighting, and a glass of wine to complement the food.

“The buses run every 10 minutes into midtown Manhattan via the Lincoln Tunnel. The Kings Bluff neighborhood of Weehawken sits above the tunnel exit making it a great location for getting into the city quickly. (Keep in mind rush hour times vary.)”
