I highly recommend visiting the Skyscraper Museum! If you are interested in architecture, tall buildings, urban history, or New York City history you will love this museum. It's not the biggest museum but they pack in a lot of information and you could spend hours in the museum trying to take everything in! The museum also holds book talks and other events that are worth checking out.
