Go Fly a Kite, You Look Pale and Sickly

It's practically summer out there, and already the most obvious public parks are overrun with winter-weary bodies hoping to score some vitamin D. Rather than despair in the cool confines of your apartment, or try to squeeze into some precious Central, Prospect or McCarren Park real estate, we suggest checking out Astoria's Socrates Sculpture Park, which is hosting a free kite-building workshop today from 11am to 2pm in conjunction with the Noguchi Museum. Even if you don't want to build your own kite, the views and the art are spectacular, and the grass much less coveted than at those other parks.
