With so many
skyscrapers in one spot your neck may need a rest. If the prospect
of a skyscraper free landscape begins to appeal you need to get
to the park - Prospect Park. What it lacks in high rise it scores

geese and swans. Alternatively just go for a walk and enjoy the
beauty of the place without having to look up.

kicks the stuffing out of stuffiness with a high-tech, interactive
experience that just makes you drawl at the word museum. Or maybe

Hosted a talking
robot, B.B. Wonderbot, Sony Wonder Technology Lab is highly interactive
and highly-tech and its free! Rotating exhibits on audio, robotics,
networks and much more. Kids get to make their own music videos

education programs. The fun for the big Kids (with wallets) is at
the Sony Style retail store, where there is plenty of cool stuff
for grownups to play with.
