All the best resources to find a New York Culinary School

Should I take my boyfriend to New York for 5 days for his birthday in October?

He visited once, when he was 10, and he absolutely loved it. For his 29th birthday on Oct. I’m thinking of taking him back for 5 days. I’m also thinking of making reservations at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Times Square, since it has a kitchen and we can cook our own meals- which would be more economical of course. What do you guys think? Good idea or not? Serious answers only please!
