EXCUSE me! HellllOOOOOOOO!? Why has no one mentioned the GREATEST THING EVER?!
OK, you always leave it up to me...
Go see THE PANORAMA OF NEW YORK at the QUEENS MUSEUM!!
This is one of my favorite things, and most under-rated attractions, in NYC. It is a scale model of NYC featuring every single building, every park, bridge, airport, beach and landmark we got.
Seriously: Every. Freakin' Building. Bring binoculars and find all the places you've been!
"The Panorama occupies 9,335 square feet. It includes miniature cars, boats and an airplane landing at and taking off from La Guardia Airport. There are more than 895,000 individual wooden or plastic buildings on the model; 25,000 were custom-made to approximate major landmarks such as skyscrapers, colleges, museums and major churches."
Make sure you check museum hours. It's pay-what-you-wish admission at all times. More discussions here:
Afterwards, hop back on the #7 and have lunch in Jackson Heights:
