"Coming to NYC in March for a weekend with my new "interest". Our second date was in NY back in November (we just happened to both be in the city on business the same week). That night we went to the Oak Bar for cocktails, then Park Avenue Autumn for dinner followed by a long walk through the park and down Broadway and finished up in the Hotel bar watching the Yankees win the World Series. It was pretty great."
It will be hard to beat the above weekend but you can do it Mark. Have a great time.

To Mark, here is a real longshot.
It's been a long time for me and I don't know current Manhattan well.
But, as you might know, I was born and raised there. AAMOF, I was born in Beth Israel Hospital on 17th St. and then I was taken home to a walk up apartment at 40 Clinton St. ( Basically Clinton at Stanton ). I lived there till I was 4! The LES was decidedly unfashionable then, and was basically a 1st generation Jewish immigrants neighborhood. Dopey and Mack have told me that the neighborhood has become somewhat fashionable ( GDL knows the area too, I believe ).
You say that you like to explore different neighborhoods for your walking experiences. Someone mentioned Katz's on Houston for a Pastrami sandwich. If you do go there you could walk the LES. Go South from Katz's to Delancey and stop by my birthplace of 40 Clinton St on the way. When conne gets to Washington, I have him working on making 40 Clinton a National Historic Monument
Go wherever you want in the city and have a great time. If you do go to the LES and pay homage to 40 Clinton St. the Pastrami sandwiches are on me.
And if you get a chance, take pictures of wherever your walking "new neighborhood" choice is.
