Little Island opened a few years ago off the pier by Meatpacking. It is a small park built on pylons in the Hudson. A cute date spot, it is open to the public and has lots of spaces to sit and enjoy the views of Manhattan, the Hudson, and New Jersey.
There are a number of stands to have light bites and a variety of areas to have private conversations with a significant other.
This is a great date spot. If you want a more substantial meal or drinks, walk a few blocks east from the highway that abuts Little Island. We recommend coming here during the summer and enjoying the breeze and a pleasant experience with a significant other.
