The world owes a great cosmic debt to time-traveling bandleader Sun Ra. He went back to Saturn and left the funkiest, swingingest band in the Milky Way here on Earth. This is your opportunity to travel the spaceways; your captain is 90-year-old Arkestra mainstay Marshall Allen. The ensemble gigs here as part of a series sponsored by crucial local imprint Northern Spy. (Turn up at 2pm for a free workshop featuring Allen and the Arkestra.)

Staten Island Ferry

Critics' pick

RECOMMENDED: 50 best New York attractions The price of a harbor crossing between Staten Island and lower Manhattan may be the only activity in New York City that’s cheaper today than it was in 1817. Back then, it was 25 cents; today, it’s free. This 24-hour ferry is a lifeline for commuters making their way from NYC’s southernmost borough, but it’s also a boat trip affording some of the finest views in the world. Keep your eyes peeled for Governors Island to the east and Ellis Island and Lady Liberty to the west as the Manhattan skyline recedes in the vessel’s wake.

The Statue of Liberty

Critics' pick

Lady Liberty—or Liberty Enlightening the World, as she’s officially known—was a gift from France on America’s 100th birthday. A universal symbol of freedom, the copper-plated sentinel stands 305 feet tall from the bottom of her base to the tip of her torch. The monument underwent renovations in 2011 (including new stairs and an elevator), reopening in July 2013 after an extended Hurricane Sandy-related closure. Reservations are required for a tour of the statue’s interior and to ascend its iconic, seven-pointed crown. RECOMMENDED: A guide to the Statue of Liberty attraction

Battery Park

Critics' pick

RECOMMENDED: 50 best New York attractions This 25-acre green space is like Manhattan’s delicate fingernail, neatly plotted with monuments, memorials, gardens, sculptures and a farm-to-table café, plus killer waterfront views from the promenade. Though the area was named for the battery cannons it once housed, the fortified walls of Castle Clinton now protect little more than summer music concerts. If you prefer a quieter nook, seek out the stone labyrinth traced in the park’s lawns; it’s not actually a maze meant to confuse, but a prescribed stroll for meditation. The new SeaGlass Carousel will open in spring 2013 in a building shaped like a nautilus shell.

Hudson River Park

Conrad New York

This sophisticated Hilton offshoot Conrad has taken over a former Embassy Suites Hotel facing Battery Park City’s riverside Nelson A. Rockefeller Park. West-facing rooms have views of the Hudson, but there are also striking sights within the art-rich property. Sol LeWitt’s vivid 100-by-80-foot painting Loopy Doopy (Blue and Purple) rises above the check-in desk in the dramatic 15-story, glass-ceilinged, marble-floored lobby, and guest quarters are adorned with pieces by contemporary lights Elizabeth Peyton and Mary Heilmann, among others. Offsetting the creative display, the style is coolly understated in the all-suite property, featuring contemporary furnishings and a neutral color scheme with lots of blond wood. A Nespresso machine stocked with a selection of coffee capsules, and marble bathrooms featuring products by cult British brand Aromatherapy Associates are indulgent touches. Above the rooftop bar (open May–Oct, weather permitting), which offers panoramas of New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty, is an herb and vegetable patch providing fresh produce for the North End Grill next door. Rooms: 463.
