• In the Bronx: Spend the morning at the Bronx Zoo or the New York Botanical Garden, and then head to Arthur Avenue, the Little Italy of the Bronx, for an authentic Italian feast.
  • In Brooklyn: You can take a look at what’s on at the always exciting Brooklyn Museum, then get some fresh air with a stroll in nearby, lovely Prospect Park. Cap it off with a real egg cream and some comfort food at Tom's Restaurant, a beloved NYC diner. Or head for Coney Island, whose face is constantly changing. Go in the summer, hit the beach, the amusement park, the aquarium, Nathan’s Famous hot dogs, and/or maybe a Cyclones baseball game. It’s a schlep, but one you will never forget.
  • In Queens: Take the 7 train, the International Express, to the Queens Museum, on the grounds of the 1964 World’s Fair, or the Louis Armstrong House Museum. If it’s the right time of year, take in a Mets game or wander the grounds of the U.S. Open. On your way back, stop for a meal at any of the ethnic restaurants you will find within close proximity of the no. 7 train. If you have kids with you (or are a person who loves learning about how things work), stop in at the quirky and wonderful Museum of the Moving Image, dedicated to the arts of film, TV, video games, and (recently) computer-generated arts.
