You've acclimated an analogy that acutely depicts the Three Sisters at Katoomba in the Blue Mountains alfresco Sydney to allegorize weekend getaways from NYC...www.travel-banking.com

How about The Blue Willow Bed and Breakfast in upstate historic Stone Ridge in Hudson Valley NY.  Gorgeous scenery, romantic, relaxing, lots to do.
