  • Children's Museum of the Arts
    Named as one of six great museums in NYC for kids by CBS New York, Children's Museum of the Arts has nurtured the artistic talents of youngsters since 1988. Tucked amid one of the city's most culture-rich neighborhoods, the SoHo facility's 10,000 square feet of galleries host three annual exhibitions by established and emerging contemporary artists, as well as children's work from the museum's permanent collection. Beyond reverence for the arts, each showing is designed to inspire kids to create their own work through the museum's nonprofit hands-on art program which hosts kids who range from 10 months to 15 years old. At the Fine Art Studio, for instance, teaching artists help students make their own paintings and drawings, while visitors to the Clay Bar sculpt creatures out of colorful clay. The complementary WEE Arts Studio also hosts age-appropriate workshops for kids ages 5 and younger, who can experiment with painting, drawing, drumming, story telling, and music. Elsewhere, kids can experiment with voiceover and music production in the Sound Booth or direct their own stop-motion shorts in the Media Lab. Along with its general hours workshops, the museum offers summer and school break camps and after-school classes in a wide variety of disciplines, as well as school group visits and partnerships and free community programs.

  • Rattlestick Production
    The Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in the West Village is a major New York theater scene mainstay, having produced and premiered more than sixty shows in the past 19 years. That’s in addition to many public and private readings of works that aren’t quite ready for the stage, followed by talkback sessions between the audience and playwrights. A new addition to Rattlestick’s repertoire is Theater:Village, an arts festival that involves staging five different shows simultaneously, all around a central theme. The intimate space means something meaningful is always happening, and the 99 cozy red velvet seats offer a comfortable counterpoint to the often challenging and cutting-edge material on the stage. With hard-hitting shows like How to Make Friends and then Kill Them and The Correspondent, Rattlestick Playwrights Theater has truly embraced its role as a New York theater community mainstay, and a home for adventurous playwrights to hone their craft.

  • Gantry Plaza State Park
    Many consider Gantry Plaza State Park to be Long Island’s hidden gem. Twelve acres along the East River offers visitors picture-perfect views of midtown Manhattan across from the United Nations and the 59th Street Bridge. The centerpiece of the park are the restored gantries used to remove train cars from barges that carried them across the East River. Enjoy trees, green spaces, lovely walkways, and well-maintained gardens with plenty of seating to enjoy this oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. Sunset here is something you won’t soon forget. Activities at the park include fishing on the piers of the East River, basketball courts, handball courts, playgrounds, and picnicking. While dogs on-leash are allowed, visitors should note signs indicating areas within the park where they are prohibited. A dog run is available on the corner of 48th Ave. and Vernon Blvd. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

  • Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space
    "This is a celebration," museum co-director Bill DiPaola told The New York Times about the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) just as it was opening in 2012. The history of the East Village’s grassroots movements is on display here, though not necessarily in traditional-museum form. A good bit of the museum’s work is done through its neighborhood walking tours, which guide guests through squats, community gardens, and famous sites that became centers of local activism and community change. As groups explore the area, tour guides—all of whom are local activists—pass on stories of the historic moments they lived through, be they fighting developers for the survival of community gardens or the 1988 Tompkins Square Park riots. Inside the museum, exhibits cover anything from local bicycle activism to photography that locks in time the many struggles of the neighborhood through the years.
