NYC with a 15-year-old (THIS Saturday)

Jump to last reply

Ok friends, due to a last-minute cancellation, I have the chance to take my little brother to NYC for a day-trip this Saturday. Unfortunately, the three main places I wanted to tour (Federal Hall, City Hall, Tweed Courthouse) are all closed Saturdays, and the place I was most excited to take him to (Sony Wonder Technology Lab) doesn't give reserve tickets less than a week in advance and only has a limited number of walk-in tickets. So, two questions:

Does anyone know how likely it is that we'll be able to get walk-in tickets to the Sony Lab?

Can anyone recommend free/cheap (I'm a recent college grad :P) things for me to do that a 15-year-old would enjoy? He loves all things video-game (thus the Sony Lab) and is interested in Japanese culture, though he's willing to broaden his horizons if anyone has any really good suggestions. :) I love history, and he doesn't mind historical sites. So far, I'm hoping to get him to the Brooklyn Bridge (and have him read a bit of The Great Bridge before we go :) ), High Line Park, and the top of the ESB (not cheap, I know, but worth it). We've seen the NYPL and Grand Central before. So... Any ideas?
