    Watch choo-choos go vroom-vroom at the Holiday Train Show. A dozen model trains traverse an incredibly detailed NYC scene, including landmarks like the Empire State Building & Radio City Music Hall. Read more

    More expensive on the weekends, but it's worth it to escape the chaos of the city for a few hours.

    Come as early as you can! Start with the tram tour because it gets busy as the day goes on. Then work your way through the Haupt building and the library!

    truly a gem hiding in plain sight within the vastness of this crowded city. well-maintained, frequently upgraded, with plenty of acres for strolling, breathing, observing, listening to the elements.
