Best Playground for Grown-Ups (2008)

ANCIENT PLAYGROUND

Complete with two-story brick pyramids and Indiana Jones­style rope swings, ANCIENT PLAYGROUND is both an adventurer's paradise and a lawsuit waiting to happen. No matter—before they shut it down (but after the rug rats vacate for the night), take a friend and go for a climb. Romantic at dusk, just visible though the glass north wall of the Metropolitan Museum, the playground echoes the architecture of the Temple of Dendur.
