My mom is visiting me in NYC for two weeks, while I have a full time job. What can she do during the day that is fun and safe?

My mom is coming to visit me and rubberkey for two weeks, she's staying so long because we both have jobs and she wants to make sure to get plenty of visiting, but that also means lots of downtime from 10-6 M-F.
So, what does a just-over-the-edge-of senior mom do the rest of the time by herself that would be cheap or close to free? She's moderately comfortable with the city, but the safer/easier the better.
Ideas we have already:
Museums: MoMA, Met, AMoNH
Libraries: The big one and the one with Winnie the Pooh
Central Park (brr)
Statue of Liberty
Suggestions need not be touristy, could just be a pleasant experience, nice views, etc.
