Review: When author Irvina Lew says “in and around New York,” she uses the term loosely. Her Romantic Weekends in and Around New York includes getaways not only within the island of Manhattan, but to six nearby states as well. From Long Island to the Poconos, Lew has sought out lodgings that ooze charm, be they riverside cottages or elegant hotels. When recommending a particular spot as a romantic retreat, Lew takes into consideration such criteria as spectacular views, fireplaces, balconies, and perks such as chocolates on your pillow or thick terrycloth bathrobes. She also makes a real effort to find excursions that are within easy reach of magnificent food. Though every listing in this book is guaranteed to be romantic, look for the heart-shaped icon in the margins to indicate the places that are likely to make your own heart beat faster.

Romantic Weekends in and Around New York covers New York City, Long Island, the Hamptons, the Hudson River Valley, the Catskills, and the Adirondacks in New York as well as areas of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Irvina Lew helps you look for love in all the right places.

“When I was trying to raise my children while working at the same time, I read a book called: “You can’t do it all”, by Irvina Siegel Lew. In it, she was explaining how to delegate chores to all members of the family, in order to survive. And I will be forever grateful to her, for honestly stating this (I am summarizing): your husband will be the first one frustrating your efforts. Most husbands will not help you with the chores because they don’t feel like it! So you can show your man the door, or accept it, because, he still is a wonderful companion. You will have to explain to your children that their dad will be excused from the teamwork because he was wrongly raised to believe that it is the woman job, but it is not your own belief thereby, zero tolerance for you, children!(end of the summary)”
