Don’t overlook uptown Manhattan. Some of the greatest museums, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to the Whitney Museum, to the Guggenheim – and that’s only on the east side of Manhattan – are in uptown Manhattan. Cross the park and you have to go to the Museum of Natural History, and of course the planetarium. Don’t miss the tours of Harlem either.
The pigeons nest in the crevices between floors of the Guggenheim. Every so often they fly out. So you need to stand and wait, and wait. If you are lucky, and have patience you can get them flying out!
