RECOMMENDED: Museum of the Moving Image

Only 15 minutes from midtown, the Museum of the Moving Image is one of the city’s most dynamic institutions. Rubbing elbows with Kaufman Astoria Studios, it includes a three-story extension that features a state-of-the-art 267-seat cinema and expanded gallery spaces. Meanwhile, the museum’s “Behind the Screen” exhibit examines every step of the filmmaking process, with artifacts from more than 1,000 different productions, and 14 classic (playable!) video games, including Asteroids, Ms. Pac-Man and Space Invaders.

    No matter how many times you immerse yourself in Sergio Leone’s languid, lovely and lengthy ode to Lower East Side mobsters (more specifically, mobster films), the same questions always float through your frontal lobe like Prohibition-champagne bu...
