New love in New York!

Four months after filing for divorce from Pete Wentz, Ashlee Simpson stepped out with Boardwalk Empire actor Vincent Piazza for a romantic stroll June 15.

"They were laughing and chatting," a witness tells Us Weekly. "She'd stop to kiss him; she couldn't take her eyes off him."

The next day, he even took Simpson, 26, to the airport for her flight back to L.A. (He's currently shooting in NYC.)

"Vincent's a chill guy, very artsy, the quiet type," says a pal. "He likes her." See more pics of the new couple.

A source says the two were set up by a friend, adding that the singer who was spotted on a friendly outing with Wentz and son Bronx, 2, in L.A. June 10 is taking the long-distance love slowly.

Says the source, "It's all very new."

Simpson's rep could not be reached for comment.
