Louis Armstrong House Museum

Located in the Corona neighborhood of Queens, this national and city landmark was the home of New Orleans jazz icon Louis Armstrong during the latter half of his life. Today, the house also operates as a museum, where much of the house and its furnishings remain just the way Armstrong and his wife, Lucille, left it. The museum is shown only through guided tours, which last 40 minutes and begin every hour. The tour takes visitors through the house, while also playing audio clips from Armstrong's life, such as him practicing his trumpet or eating a meal, among other things. After the 40-minute tour, visitors are welcome to explore the exhibit area and a Japanese garden.

New York City Fire Museum

The New York City Fire Museum is an ode to those at the forefront of the city's safety. Having shifted base a number of times since its inception, the museum now occupies a refurbished firehouse dating back to 1904. The collection on display features steam engines, model fire trucks, cutting edge fire-fighting equipment and gear from the late 18th Century to the present day. The fire related artifacts and memorabilia celebrate the trajectory of the FDNY and honor its heritage. Pay your respects to the 343 firefighters that lost their lives in the 9/11 terror attacks and view objects recovered from Ground Zero. Engage yourself with stories of courage narrated by retired firemen as well as a fire safety education session.

Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York

Established in 1782, the Grand Lodge of New York belongs to the Freemasons. This lodge is the governing body of hundreds of lodges that are located in the state. They are known to oversee and help arrange a range of events in the state. Some of these events include blood donation drives and awareness programs to discourage child abuse and consumption of alcohol and drugs. Visitors can take a guided tour of this lodge and learn about its rich history.

The Trinity Church Cemetry and Mausoleum

Trinity Church Cemetery has graves of many historic and famous personalities including Alexander Hamilton, Robert Fulton, William Bradford among others. Surrounded by 100-year-old oaks and elms, the cemetery is a very peaceful place, with grassy knolls and well maintained paths. This is one of the last remaining cemeteries in the Manhattan area. There are two bronze tablets here that mark the spots where fierce battle took place during the revolution. This cemetery is marked in the National Register of Historic Places and it still offers its services to the New Yorkers.

East Coast Memorial

Located in Battery Park at the very southern tip of Manhattan, this World War II memorial features eight 19-foot (5.8-meter) granite pillars engraved with the names of over 4600 U.S. servicemen who either died or were reported missing overseas in the western Atlantic Ocean during Word War II. The memorial's main attraction is a large bronze eagle which rests on top of a black granite slab in between the two rows of pillars. The memorial neighbors the historic Fort Clinton.

The Noguchi Museum

This museum is quite a hidden gem. Created by the Japanese-American sculptor and landscape architect Isamu Noguchi in 1985, the museum documents the history of his life and works. The design of the museum itself is considered to be one of Noguchi's major works. The grounds are home to 12 galleries and an adjoining garden. There are 250 pieces in all, including sculptures made of wood, bronze, clay and steel, as well as video documentaries.
