36 (107) Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
The Intrepid Aircraft Carrier
You have to see an aircraft carrier to appreciate how big they are. Walk the flight deck of the 900 foot-long aircraft carrier Intrepid and you'll see what I mean. Floating cities is a description that fits pretty well.
The new Intrepid Museum does spectacular well with its interactive exhibits and has virtually ensured its multi-sensory technology will inform and entertain. With a total of 30 restored aircraft to examine, the former USS Growler submarine to explore and the British Airways Concorde to zoom over the Intrepid Museum is a mega boys toy store.
see hundreds of exhibits on aviation, deep sea and space exploration, board the world's fastest passenger jet-Concorde, and see dozens of vintage and modern aircrafts parked wing to wing on the flight deck. Experience all this at the Intrepid Museum and more!
37 (105) Manhattan Greenway Bike Path
The Manhattan Waterfront Greenway is a 32-mile long walking and bicycling path through the Hudson River Park, Battery Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and Central Park. Hence its name. The views are fantastic.
Much of the Greenway is kept away from traffic. Out of necessity you will have to negotiate some traffic but only for relatively short distances. Most of the rules about using New York's Greenways are pretty obvious. One you might miss is locking your bicycle to a tree. Don't. It is harmful to the tree. It is also potentially damaging to you finances. It could cost you a $1,000 fine.
The New York Pass grants you a free half-day bike rental (up to four hours).
38 (20) New York Public Library
You are greeted by lions named Patience and Fortitude on Fifth Avenue on the outside. And spoilt by a massive and beautiful interior inside. Architecturally, the New York Public Library is one of New York's classics, both inside and out. There are also free art exhibits shown inside. For researchers, the library is a gold mine. Its many halls contain countless volumes, periodicals and a large staff to help you through it all.
Explore as many of the rooms as you can and you will see some really old paintings and a very old bible.
39 Concerts in Central Park
Rumsey Playfield, enter at 69th Street and 5th Avenue for a great summer nights gathering of peoples across the Big Apple. Join with the people for music, song and maybe just a little laughter.
40 (18) Madame Tussauds Wax Museum New York
How gorgeous am I?
It would be easy to wax lyrical about Madame Tussauds is there are so many famous people to see and you can say whatever you like to them. The Superman flying experience is uplifting and gives you the chance make a video/CD fly around NYC for a while.
Conveniently located right in the heart of Times Square with over 200 celebrities from the worlds of film, TV, history, politics, music and sports all lined up for your inspection. A good thing to do if the weather is not up to doing much. Figures are very life like and it doesn't take forever to see it all. It is simple fun. Don't forget your camera and be on your toes for any action shots.
