Tips

  • Grab a friend and spin the cube
  • Take a photo with the cube. The best part is that it spins! Go ahead, push it!

  • An amazing place to sit and watch the sunset
  • Great spot
  • Wikipedia: "Completed in 1904, it is one of the original twenty-eight stations in the [subway] system. The station is on the List of Registered Historic Places in New York."
  • In Spiderman 2, Doctor Octopus hurls a car through the window of a restaurant in Astor Place, nearly killing Peter Parker and Mary Jane.

  • The cube rotates...
  • Random Milton Glaser piece from the 80's in the subway below because why not.
  • Check out St Marks Ale House on NFL Sunday for TVs nachos And cheap drafts all sunday. Assuming we have the NFL to watch this season.

  • Cobble stone sidewalks are a part of the historical landmark essence that make Astor place great.
