Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

If you need a quick change of scenery from our concrete tundra, duck into this hidden oasis in midtown that just so happens to be open to the public. The Ford Foundation building houses a 12-story atrium that boasts a verdant green space with 39 species of subtropical plants, a reflecting pool and a garden with plants you can touch and smell. Even if it’s only during a few stolen moments between meetings, sneaking away to this paradise will enliven you.
