This in-between time, where it might be too cold to sit outside but it's too beautiful not to appreciate the weather, is paid its dues by Newsday, which puts together a list of ten New York City restaurants with great views. Mentioned are The Water's Edge in Queens (pictured, left) for a spectacular Manhattan skyline, Asiate at the Time-Warner Center for views in the middle of the city and of Central Park, New Leaf Cafe for Fort Tyron's parky goodness, and The Lobster Box in the Bronx with vistas of the Long Island Sound. Plus there's the old standby of the lower Manhattan view - The River Cafe. Gothamist would like to add The Terrace in Morningside Heights/Harlem and the revolving restaurant at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square.

But if the weather gets to be as warm as it was earlier this week, then check out some places with outdoor eating from New York magazine. Gothamist on bars with views.
