25 NYC Tourist Activities That Are Actually Cool

Taking in the Barclays Center

Neighborhood: Prospect Heights, Brooklyn

Plenty have discussed what's wrong and right about the new arena, including Complex, but now that it's here, it's hard to argue against it's status as a cool destination. One, it gets you out of the crowd crush of Manhattan. Two, you can watch an NBA game scored to more rap music than you can shake a fist at (including an excellent mix of "Unbelievable" that plays during peak moments). Three, it works as a gateway to Brooklyn, getting your family further away from the bigger tourist attractions and into dive bars, great sandwich spots, and Prospect Park (which is really pleasant, guys).
