Yes unless things have changed recently. There is a small area where you can meet arrivals. I'm not sure if there are any coffee shops or anything open though.

Bowling Alleys open today at 50% with one lane empty between parties.
Museums, aquariums and other low-risk indoor cultural venues will be allowed to open in New York City on Aug. 24 with various COVID-19 restrictions, including operating at 25% occupancy capacity.
Today they are also supposed to announce guidance on and when gyms can be open.

FWIW I've stayed at several Manhattan hotels over the last few days with family visiting, and not once was I asked where I came from or had to fill out any COVID forms.

Side note: Walking out of the Marriott Marquis today I noticed several big semi trucks and crews emptying out the Booth theatre of its technical gear. Lights, speakers, etc. I wonder if that is a bad sign for just the Booth or all of Broadway?

I don't think I'd read *too* much into that. Every production will make its own decision. The Booth was presenting Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf? with Laurie Metcalf. The show was in previews I think for about a week before the shutdown; opening was supposed to be early April. But it was pretty quickly announced that the show would not open. The timing of the load-out is probably related to being able to get (union) workers in to do it now that the pandemic is more or less under control here.
Other shows have also announced they won't be re-opening (e.g., Frozen), and others are still planning to come back, although of course timing is still up in the air.
