"Looking around" Rockefeller Center generally isn't a crime.
"Looking around" where you're in my back yard and peeking in the windows
is, at a minimum, trespass, and if our local cops notice you doing it, you
can expect that you may find yourself ... severely inconvenienced.
There is no "freedom to look around" on private property, despite what you
appear to think.
