This March 6, 2013 photo shows sculptures at the Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum in Astoria, in the Queens borough of New York. The late Noguchi, a Japanese-American sculptor known for his spare, modernist style, lived and worked in the building and created a museum for his works there. Astoria and the adjacent neighborhood of Long Island City are home to several museums, in addition to attractions like waterfront parks and good restaurants. A boom in moderately priced hotels in Long Island City is luring tourists to the area. (AP Photo/Beth J. Harpaz)
