10. Socrates Sculpture Park

Location: Socrates Sculpture Park, 32-01 Vernon Boulevard at Broadway Long Island City (Queens), NY 11106

Socrates Sculpture Park, located in Astoria (and one block away from the Noguchi Museum), is a good spot for a first summer date. Pack a basket filled with sandwiches and wine, grab a blanket, and spend a lazy day lounging under the sun while looking at sculptures and installations.
