So Much to Do
If you are working in our new Columbus Circle location, you may want to find something to do when you take a break or when your workday is over. There is so much to do here; it’s hard to choose just a few. However, we’ve chosen a few of the most popular venues and events to feature in this article.
Metropolitan Museum of Art
Metropolitan Museum of Art, or “The Met,” is the most popular museum and attraction in New York City. You will find more than 5,000 years of art from around the world, and this museum is a source of insight, understanding, and inspiration. You’ll want to make sure you have several hours to spend learning, playing, connecting, escaping, discovering, and dreaming when you plan your visit to The Met.
Cleopatra’s Needle is located West of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. This is a 220-ton monolith, a single piece of stone carved from granite found in quarries of Aswan. It’s one of two pieces commissioned by Pharaoh Thutmose III near what we now know as Cairo. It is an obelisk, which scholars believe is representative of immortality and eternity. They serve to connect the heavens and earth.

Shakespeare Garden is hidden on a hillside below Belvedere Castle. This four-acre space is reminiscent of an English garden, filled with herbs, trees, flowers, and shrubs mentioned in William Shakespeare’s poems and plays. You’ll find bronze plaques with quotes from Shakespeare scattered throughout the park. Delacorte Theater is nearby, which is where the Public Theater does their performances of Shakespeare in the Park- but the garden has been around a lot longer than the theater. This is a great place to go and get away from the hustle and bustle of work and relax.
American Museum of Natural History
The American Museum of Natural History is one of the most distinguished cultural and scientific institutions in the entire world. It was founded in 1869 and, since that time, has advanced its mission to learn, interpret, and share information about various cultures, the natural world, and even the universe through a variety of exhibitions, research, and educational programs. The museum is well known for its collections and exhibitions that serve as a guide to the planet and the cultures around the world.
