This fall you'll be able to cozy up with your friends under patio heaters at about 1,000 cafés and restaurants in New York City. A new regulation allows anyone with a licensed sidewalk cafe or restaurant to add the space heaters, extending the time that patrons can hang out alfresco.

More news from New York: The city is launching a NYC Sunday Stays promotion at roughly two dozen hotels, offering discounted Sunday night room rates of 20 to 30 percent. Details here.
