Summer is coming to an end but there is still a lot of fun to be had. NYC is quieter than it’s ever been. With so many escaping north or out east, its an amazing time to discover our giant playground. New Yorkers are finding events and activities right in their backyard they had never discovered before. I have round up some local fun filled activities that are totally safe and will keep the whole family healthy!
Enjoy the summer sun while on the East River! Starting August 19th enjoy free kayaking Wednesdays & Saturdays from Pier 4! Families of all ages are welcome but children under 18 years of age must have an adult guardian. Register in advance. Brooklyn Bridge Park is a great resource for family fun events and activities!
The Museum Of Ice Cream is hosting in person workshops. Visitors will learn the history of ice cream while also creating their very own flavor form scratch.
