Looking to take my laptop and work inside a park somewhere in Manhattan. Ideally, should be inside the park, but anything right next to it works too. Since those are the closest to me, any locations in Thompson or Union Square parks will be the best. Thanks!

Where to play piano for free in NYC just once? A out-of-town friend wants to play piano in NYC: are there public spaces with pianos? A way to play at a church? (And note: I just mean play for playing sake, not play for an audience.)

Today is my birthday. No congratulations needed or sought; the gift of your answer to my query will suffice!
How can I monetize this? Yes, I'm looking for places in New York City that will give me a free ice cream (or something else) in exchange for a quick glance at my ID. Preferably places that don't require me to be under 12. Thanks!
