Come off the beaten path. Take the road not taken. Just across the East River in Queens, in what is called Long Island City, the celebrated Japanese sculptor Isamu Noguchi located his studio. Today, this is sacred ground for those who appreciate the Western Zen genius of his evocative pieces. To walk through the tranquil sculpture garden with someone you love is a rare treat. Continue on to the Noguchi Museum itself and later sip exotic cocktails at Dutch Kills, an artsy watering hole.
