66 West Broadway, Tribeca
The sensibility at this trio of boutiques for the under-10 set revolves around cool, print-happy European brands like Mini Rodini and Bobo Choses, mixed in with picks from Munster, Doc Marten, and any number of cool, primarily wooden toys. They also have Dwell Studio bedding, cribs, and a healthy assortment of strollers and carriers. There are actually three locations in Tribeca, including one at Brookfield Place.
Hudson River Park’s Pier 25
Harrison & North Moore Sts., Tribeca
Mini-golf, beach volleyball, a skate park, and a huge play structure are just the beginning at this Hudson River-adjacent park. There are also loads of water features (bring a change of clothes), swings, and climbing walls—and it’s all adjacent to Tribeca and Battery Park City, meaning there are tons of options when everyone get hungry.
179 W. Broadway, Tribeca
Big, bustling, and long-standing, Landmarc is one of those spots that can appease even the fussiest of palates. Beyond the fact that they're never annoyed by the presence of young ones, they're quick with the crayons and the kid-friendly menu, which includes hits like macaroni and cheese, chicken fingers, and peanut butter and Nutella sandwiches. Did we mention they serve cotton candy? Meanwhile, parents will find plenty that appeals, too, as well as a really nice wine list. It's great for groups as the one in the Time Warner Center in particular is huge.
Nelson A. Rockefeller Park
North End of Battery Park City, West of River Terrace
Located in the northern-most area of Battery Park City with direct views of the Hudson, this is one of the best parks in the city, with several play structures for different age groups, a water area, and a sand pit. Kids can also climb and interact with the playful Tom Otterness sculptures installed throughout the park.
Washington Market Park
Greenwich St. & Duane St.
This excellent neighborhood park—smack in the middle of Tribeca—feels like its own world. The edge is lined with trees, which gives it a veil of privacy and makes the play areas, water fountains, and jungle gyms feel like they're in a not-in-the-middle-of-a-city place.
