New York Hall of Science

Location Description:

The New York Hall of Science is appropriately located at the site of the 1964 Worldas Fair, which is in Flushing Meadows Park. And this is also the place where that big ugly alien bug, played appropriately by Vincent DaOnofrio, tried to steal his spaceship in Men in Black

. The only hands-on science museum in the city, NYHS is a good place to get down and dirty. Admission is cheap and you get to see all the creepy microbes that live on your hands.
