What do you enjoy and what is your budget? I agree that I have done spa days, big day hikes, solo tasting menu dinner, days at my favorite museums, just wandering around New York with a notebook and a novel - sitting in parks, stopping for nice glasses of wine. I love a day alone in an amazing city.

Basically all of those things except the hike part haha. Budget will probably be like $300-400 for the day

In NYC for my bday alone a few years ago, I got a same day single ticket for a broadway show (Waitress) and treated myself to dinner before. It was fab

Dinner and a show in NYC. Find a super nice restaurant and sit at the bar (assuming they serve food) and buy a single ticket for a show. I actually love walking around NYC alone and doing and going where I want!

1) Go to Aire baths for candle lit swimming and relaxing, maybe add a massage. 2) take the ferry from Manhattan to BK or Vice versa, it’s the best $3 and you have yourself a cruise. 3) book a ticket at the Edge in Hudson Yards for amazing views then enjoy a sunset cocktail at Electric Lemon which is right across
