May sunshine also makes good conditions for exploring Randall’s Island Park’s trails. Visit an information desk inside the fair for a free Park map to guide you to the Urban Farm, or the freshwater wetland which is home to butterflies and migrating birds.

It’s your last chance to take in one of Frieze Talks, programmed by CCS Bard’s Tom Eccles, which features artists, curators and cultural figures — today’s features award-winning poet and activist Claudia Rankine.  A parallel series of more informal discussions takes place in the Reading Room, where leading art publications present talks – and very persuasive subscription deals. A last drink — or a slice from Roberta's - on the outside deck is the prefect moment to relax with a view of the city’s skyline – and to start your notes for the next Frieze Week.

Tickets for Frieze New York 2017 are available here.
