Inwood Hill Park
The only park in Manhattan to have a natural salt marsh, Inwood Hill Park is filled with other natural formations such as caves, valleys, and ridges as a result of shifting glaciers. Bordering the Hudson and Harlem rivers, this park also used to be home to Native Americans in the 17th century. Along with hiking trails to explore nature, the park has three playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts, baseball fields, handball courts, and a site to kayak/canoe.
Visit it: Dyckman Street, Inwood; nycgovparks.org/parks/inwood-hill-park
Can’t-miss event: Drums Along the Hudson on June 3, 11am-6pm
South Street Seaport Museum
Located on the East River, this museum highlights the city’s history as a major port for trade and immigration. Visit the museum to participate in walking tours, historic ships tours, and a visit to Bowne Print Shop—the oldest operating business under the same name. Kids can take part in an early childhood program called miniMATES to learn about marine life and develop fine motor skills, or have fun during Open Play.
