Socrates Sculpture Park. Never heard of it.

One of the most unrecognized New York City Parks is Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, Queens. It’s a unique park used mostly by artists as an exhibition and performance space, but also used for other cool events, like a kite-making class (I know!) and the upcoming State Fair in May.

This summer, starting in July, they’ll hold their annual outdoor film festival. Watch a film outdoors while watching a city sunset? Oh my. And for you bike-riding hipsters (I’m really just talking to myself here), there’s a bike parade in June.

They’re open every day of the year and admission is free.
