2. Sit at the Bethesda Fountain and Eat Greek at Three Guys
Sometimes all you need is to enjoy each other’s company on Valentine’s Day in a peaceful environment. Do just that over at Bethesda Fountain, which is a one-minute walk from Bethesda Terrace.
Located in Central Park, it was the setting of the final scene in the play, Angels in America written by Tony Kushner, which eventually won a Pulitzer Prize. The sculpture at the fountain is called The Angels of the Waters which Emma Stebbins, a lesbian sculptor, created. During the start of the 20th century, gay men would come to this fountain to enjoy time with one another.
Take the 10-minute walk or three-minute drive over to Three Guys for a delicious Greek-inspired Valentine’s Day dinner. According to GrubHub, their three most popular items are the french roast turkey breast sandwich, the Corfu salad with grilled chicken, and the traditional Greek salad with chicken skewers.
