10. The David Rubenstein Atrium: A Garden on the Wall


The David Rubenstein Atrium at 61 West 52nd St., was renovated and renamed in 2009 after the Rubenstein’s generous $10 million gift. Formerly known as Harmony Atrium, it has a cool vertical garden that replaced a climbing wall. It’s lovely to sit by this indoor ‘garden’ when the weather outside is frightful. Add free wi-fi, a rare public restroom and ‘Wichcraft Cafe, and you’re all set. Open 8am-10pm most days.
