  • City Ice Pavilion
    City Ice Pavilion's NHL-sized rooftop rink is open to ice-capaders year-round. That's thanks, in part, to the large weatherproof dome that curves over the the interior and gives it a cavernous feel, much like the ancient ice skating rinks found in pyramids. Aspiring skaters can take lessons, then try out their new skills during public skate sessions or adult or youth hockey leagues. Besides classes and open skating times, the Ice Pavilion also hosts a wide range of skating-themed events, including a regular morning coffee club for experienced adult skaters.

  • Must See Central Park
    Must See Central Park matches sightseers up with a bike or tour-guide-driven pedicab and sends them off to explore Central Park's 843 acres, laced with 47 miles of paths. Alone or with a guide well versed in the park's rich history, visitors traverse gentle hills, gawk at skyscrapers, sniff the flowers of the Shakespeare Garden, and grab a snack from one of many options highlighted on complimentary maps. Special tours delve into particular corners of history: the Movie Tour, for instance, highlights the hundreds of scenes that have been filmed in Central Park since 1908, when it served as the site for more than 20 pictures in the popular horse-walking genre alone.

  • Modern Pinball NYC
    In 1942, New York City Mayor La Guardia banned pinball, claiming it was a game of chance and not skill. The ban stuck and the game didn't make its return until 1976 when the pinball ban was overturned. Today, no such controversy surrounds pinball?in fact, it's experiencing a resurgence in the city, with Modern Pinball NYC leading the charge. Here, fun-lovers gather to rack up points on more than 30 machines, some of which date back to the late 1970s, some of which are brand new, with step-stools available for kids. Named one of New York Magazine's best in 2014, Modern Pinball NYC isn't your typical arcade; it features pinball machines exclusively, and, instead of bringing the machines to life by inserting quarters or hooking them up to car batteries, visitors purchase hour and day passes to play all the games as many times as they wish. This system enables Modern Pinball NYC to maintain a social, high-energy gaming environment that centers on clean, non-violent fun?a trait that many modern video games may lack? and even CNN and The Wall Street Journal have weighed in on the new darling of the NYC pinball scene.
