Best public place to feel up your girlfriend


Everyone likes to make out in public now and again, but for lesbians, just holding hands garners sleazy stares that makes any small act of affection seem more like a preview for a soft-porn flick on Cinemax. The always gay Christopher Street Pier in Hudson River Park provides queer teens (and adults who don’t mind their noisy antics) with a safe haven to get their grope on—it’s been this way since the ’70s. Plush grass is perfect for “lay-me-down” fun, while the lengthy boardwalk provides romantic Hudson views and secluded seating for plenty of PG-13 nookie. It gets even saucier after dark, where queer lovers can throw any iota of caution to the wind and let their hands roam free under the dim light of the moon.
