  • Free Things to Do: "If you're able to swing it, go during the week and avoid the weekend crowds."
  • Best Attractions & Activities: "If you're able, head here midweek to beat the crowds."
  • Romantic Things to Do: "On Tuesdays, join the star-spotters to see constellations through high-powered telescopes."
  • Sightseeing: "Try to plan your trip for a weekday afternoon. The weekends are jam-packed and hoards of people detract from the experience."
  • Best for Free Things to Do Because: It's the perfect place to feel like you're still in the action but away from the madness below.
  • Recommended as Best Attractions & Activities Because: It's part of what makes New York so great – taking something old and decrepit and turing it into a beloved hotspot.
  • Best for Romantic Things to Do Because: It's romantic, even though that defies logic. Hanging lights and wooden walkways add to the charm.
  • Best for Sightseeing Because: It's a living, breathing example of how to go from ruins to riches in terms of decaying city landscapes.

  • Parks: "Star-spotters arrive on Tuesdays, Amateur Astronomers Night to see constellations through high-powered telescopes. Combine with Chelsea Market lunch; the new Whitney Museum of American Art."
  • Best for Parks Because: Amazing urban reuse design and landscape architecture that is inspiring; the views incomparable.
