New York City is lucky to have one of the best sculpture parks in the country right in its backyard: the Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City. The 4.7-acre park is open year-round and gives visitors the opportunity to view large-scale sculptures and multimedia works installed on what used to be an ugly, abandoned landfill and dump site. In addition to the installed works, Socrates also offers a full calendar of events and programming, from concerts and performances to workshops and movie nights. To give you an early start on your plans for the coming months, here is a list of things to see/do at the park this summer.
