Still think it’s is worth the wait? Read our guide to New York’s most jampacked attractions — including pro tips from crowd survivors and less insane Plan Bs, just in case.

Fashion victims Daniel William McKnight

The hot mess: God, grant those hoping for a relaxing afternoon at the Cloisters the serenity to accept the pushy fashionistas clamoring to see the Christ-inspired couture. The Met’s medieval-art mecca, in way-out-there Washington Heights, has become a hot spot thanks to the Costume Institute’s divine “Heavenly Bodies” show. One Heights resident tells The Post that the weekend line was so daunting she just went home. That didn’t deter Cloisters regular Lydia Carr from going on a recent afternoon, though she says the staff seemed “flustered” by the crowds “accidentally-on-purpose” touching the clothes. “I don’t mind the dresses,” the 37-year-old adds, “but I’ll be glad when it’s over!”

Pro tip: Play hooky from work and go during the week to avoid the crowds. Met members ($80 for an annual membership) can skip the line, though they may have to elbow their way through to the art. 99 Margaret Corbin Drive, Fort Tryon Park; 212-923-3700, MetMuseum.org

Mosh pit Dan Kaufmann and Martha Guarnieri are exasperated by the wait time for “David Bowie Is.”Stefano Giovannini

The hot mess: Life on Mars may be preferable to the lines at the Brooklyn Museum this weekend, with the out-of-this-world “David Bowie Is” exhibit closing on Sunday. Those who have snagged timed tickets online for the morning report that the wait is only about 15 minutes, but visitors with weekend afternoon slots aren’t as lucky. Take 33-year-old Harlem-based writer Leah Hansen, who had to wait 90 minutes on a Saturday, despite having tickets for 3:15 p.m. “I was not happy, but I felt even worse for the people who had later time slots,” she tells The Post. “If they waited 90 minutes too, they would’ve had all of 15 minutes to go through the exhibit before the museum started kicking people out at 5:30.”

Pro tip: Advance tickets are sold out, but the museum has reserved some same-day entry spots for procrastinators. Staffers suggest getting there before the doors open at 11 a.m., as tickets tend to be gone by noon, but expect your time slot to be later in the day. Fortunately, you can kill several hours at the museum’s equally excellent “Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-1985.” 200 Eastern Parkway, Prospect Heights; 718-638-5000, BrooklynMuseum.org

Hell no, Dolly Julieta Cervantes

The hot mess: Insane crowds at “Hello, Dolly!” on Broadway are a sure Bette. That’s because its Tony Award-winning star, Bette Midler, is returning to the musical for just six weeks starting July 17. During her first stint, tickets went for as much as $800 and performances were always sold out — leading to hordes of people waiting for cancellation seats all day. “The Midler lines at the Shubert are always long and lively,” p.r. man Rick Miramontez tells The Post. Even wilder are the fans waiting to bask in the glow of the Divine Miss M post-show. “Bette at the stage door is one of the great Broadway events,” Miramontez says.

Pro tip: Midler is fab, but she’s just one part of a sensational production. To give the star a break, actress Donna Murphy will play the lead role for just five performances (July 22 and 29, and August 5, 12, 19 and 20). Tickets to Murphy’s shows will be cheaper, there will be more availability and you’ll have a good old-fashioned blast. Shubert Theatre, 225 W. 44th St.; tickets at Telecharge.com or 212-239-6200

Hunger games Richard B. Levine/Sipa USA

The hot mess: Setting up shop in a park worked so well for Danny Meyer with Shake Shack. Why wouldn’t he do the same for his new fast-casual Mexican concept, Tacocina? It’s situated on the waterfront of Williamsburg’s just-opened Domino Park, next to the abandoned Domino Sugar factory. The splashy spot, which serves up tacos from $3.50 and Mexican cocktails from $7, has enjoyed nonstop sales since opening. But patrons are lamenting the lines, which can wrap around the stand on weekends. “It’s good, but it’s not wait-in-line-for-an-hour good,” says David Fisch, a 27-year-old account manager from the Upper West Side, who was lucky enough to fly through the queue in under 15 minutes on a Monday evening.

Pro tip: If you can’t make it on a laid-back weekday, wear a hat. The open-air joint offers little relief from the punishing sun. Also, leave your cash at home: Tacocina is part of a growing trend of card-only restaurants. Finally, if the line is just unbearable, walk east for five minutes till you hit Oaxaca Taqueria, at Berry and Grand streets. There, you can pick up a few perfectly serviceable tacos to bring back to the park. 25 River St., Williamsburg; 646-783-6825, HeyTacocina.com

Sweat shop Lauren Steussy

The hot mess: Everlane’s known for its quality, minimalist clothing — but the weekend line for its Prince Street flagship is decidedly maximalist. Employees say the line is intended to keep the small store from filling up past an occupancy of about 40. Inside, there are more frustrations, including a line to try on the brand’s $16 T-shirts and limited — generally, small — sizes available on the floor. “I mind a little,” shopper Yen Fang, a 25-year-old Roosevelt Island resident, tells The Post. “But I heard the quality is good, so I guess it’s worth it.”

Pro tip: There’s no line online — though there is a $6 fee for returns, so pick your poison. Employees say crowds are largest at about 4 p.m. on weekends, so try coming on weekdays when the store opens at 11 a.m. Or find yourself a friend like Jay Choi, a student from Philadelphia. He held a place in line for his two friends as they shopped nearby. “It’s always good to have someone wait for you!” says Choi. 28 Prince St.; Everlane.com

Fail boat J.C. Rice

The hot mess: For a weekend trip to the Rockaways, who could resist trading a subway ride for waterfront views and rosé on tap on the year-old NYC Ferry — especially since it’s the exact same price? Not many, it turns out. That’s why 30 people lined up for the ferry in Sunset Park on a recent Saturday morning — and only 15 made it on. The ferry only picks up at two locations: Wall Street and the Brooklyn Army Terminal in Sunset Park. But both docks are jam-packed with hopeful passengers, and the ferry’s 150 seats fill up fast.

Sunset Park resident Darby Secaur, 26, missed the cutoff. He was forced to wait an additional 30 minutes for the next boat, putting his total wait time at about 45 minutes — in a hot parking lot with no shade. “We’ll get there when we get there,” he tells The Post, shrugging.

Pro tip: Slather on sunscreen before you leave the house, and show up at least a half-hour early. Or just go back to taking the A train to the beach — it now drops you off directly at Beach 116th Street three blocks away from the sand. Ferry.nyc for routes and schedules

Members-only madhouse Johanna Vanderspool

The hot mess: Ever since Soho House opened its latest outpost, DUMBO House, in May, it’s lured well-off creative types and celebs, including the newly engaged Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin. Its biggest draw is the rooftop pool, which is only accessible to Soho House members and their plus-ones. On the weekends, they have to fight over lounge chairs — the unlucky ones get stuck standing. “It’s superbuzzy. Everyone’s excited to have it in the neighborhood,” Taul Paul, a 24-year-old DJ, tells The Post.

Pro tip: If you’re not one of the chosen few, head downstairs to Dumbo House’s Italian restaurant, Cecconi’s. It’s still a madhouse, but at least it’s open to the public. Unwind with a glass of $7 happy-hour wine between 4 and 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. 55 Water St., Brooklyn; DUMBOHouse.com

Rooftop roadblocks Stefano Giovannini

The hot mess: Good luck breaking through the line at Broken Shaker, the new rooftop bar at Gramercy Park’s Freehand Hotel. With its Caribbean decor and fruity cocktails, the trendy venue has become a fast favorite with techies, Wall Street bros and Instagram models. That explains all the pretty young things tapping their toes outside: Broken Shaker’s line wraps around the block on both weeknights and weekends. The clunky ride up to the 18th floor — where jockeying for drinks is a competitive sport — doesn’t help: “The elevators are so slow, and only so many people can fit in at a time,” one Yelp user complained.

Pro tip: Skip the trip to the roof and settle in at the George Washington Bar located on Freehand’s mezzanine level. The still-sceney but lower-key lounge serves up classic cocktails, like Sazeracs and whiskey sours. 23 Lexington Ave.; FreehandHotels.com

Turf Wars Stefano Giovannini

The hot mess: William Vale’s latest rooftop pop-up in Williamsburg is the highest bar in the borough, with sweeping vistas. But if you want to snap those views, you’ll have to fight for them: The bar is only open weekend nights, when a see-and-be-seen crowd pours into its massive beanbag-strewn green space. Plus, the reality may be less glamorous than the ’gram. “It’s nice, but a little basic,” David, a 30-year-old patron, who declined to share his last name, tells The Post.

Pro tip: If the crowd’s too crazy, head a couple blocks east to Spritzenhaus33 (33 Nassau Ave.), a trendy beer garden with outdoor seating. 111 North 12th St., Brooklyn; 718-631-8400, TheWilliamVale.com
