5 unusual places in New York, which are not even aware of local

My first trip to New York was for a month - I managed to do a lot that October, but still I didn’t see and visit everything. The second time I came again for a month - it was April, I had even more time. Now I spent a year in this city and still I can’t say that I was everywhere. It is a vast and amazing city.

But there are 5 places that I would advise to visit, even if you only have a week.

Underground park

Pro designed on the site of an abandoned metro line towering above the streets of the city park Highline you probably heard, but about Low line - hardly. Project Low line was funded by Kickstarter and its goal is to transform the abandoned underground stations, turning them into a place for walking in winter. Sunlight enters through holes made in the ceiling. This is the first underground park in the world currently operating in test mode. You can visit on Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm (but it is better to get to the Highline on a weekday, when there are slightly fewer people).

Farm on a barge

I'm interested barge farm (now she should be in Concrete plant park, Bronx, NY 10472) as well roof trusses (there are several locations in Brooklyn and at least one in Queens, almost everyone can boast a stunning view of Manhattan).
From new and affordable - farm on Governors Island (you need to go there by ferry) and the island itself, by the way, is extremely interesting from an architectural point of view - beautiful views open up from there, you can ride bicycles around the island and accidentally get to the drone championship.

Museum of the Future

Museum Metropolitan  - a good deal, but it takes many hours or, better, several dozen visits during the year to get imbued with the exhibits. I advise you to go to Met Breuer (you can pay any amount for admission) or Cooper hewitt (free admission on Saturdays from 6 to 9 evenings). If the lion's part of museums in the world somehow talk about the past, then Cooper Hewitt is clearly about the future. Only here you can see the glass printed on 3D-printers, dresses made of materials that change color under the influence of temperature and much more. Exposure is constantly changing, always looking forward to new discoveries.

Unusual theater

I recommend not to miss the chance and go to the immersion / interactive theater. The most famous performance is  Sleep No More in Manhattan. My advice is to have a cocktail at the beginning of the event (everything will be better perceived), and at the afterparty it is also better to book a table and enjoy the concert (after 3 hours of walking with the actors, you will very much want to sit down later). We also went to a party at the same hotel on the terrace and it was very cool! Here is a more budgetary, but also interesting option -  Whisper lodge (this is in Brooklyn).

If we talk about Broadway performances - I really liked The Phantom of the Opera, I fully recommend it. The most impressive performance for me was Kira Knightley, but it came in the fall of 2015, and from new it was a play with Danny DeVito.

The best view of the city

The last point is a big responsibility; Long thought and decided to advise the terrace with a gorgeous view of the city. I recommend to go to East Williamsburg (you should walk there at the same time - a lot of advertising in the form of graffiti and street art) to go up to the terrace in the hotel. The William Vale Hotel (it is open from 4 hours of the day). There is a restaurant and you can drink coffee. Frankly, the view is worth any money.

If we talk about viewing platforms - it is worth going to World Trade Center (at the same time to see a new amazing station Path, designed by Calatrava) or at Rockefeller Center (Central Park is close and therefore it wins against the site in Empire State Building). The terrace in the hotel is better because this location is open from the end of August, and very few have managed to go there. There are no queues and the same money that you spend on the entrance to the observation room, you can spend on some kind of drink and dessert.
