A nice place to visit is Greenwich Village on the west Side of Lower Manhattan New York City. It has a relaxed, easy going, chill out kind of atmosphere, with a flurry of students, locals, and tourists. Good to wander, shop or enjoy a meal in one of the charming cafe's or restaurants scattered about.
Known as the "Village" the area has a history of free spirit creativity in the art and music world.

Did you know that the Amateur Astronomers Association gather at the Lincoln Center on Fridays and Saturday evenings in August to stargaze? High powered telescopes are set up and people are invited to join them. Starting at Sunset until 11pm.
Also the AAA gather in Central Park for solar observing one Sunday afternoon in the month, at the 'model boat pond'. The telescopes they use have special filters for observing the sun.
