Baby & toddler, Pre-school & younger, Young elementary


Event description:

Check out the exhibit Waterfront and stay for this collage activity designed to encourage artistic, self-expression and build group interaction. Children create collages on background line drawings that depict either the DUMBO waterfront, the Empire Stores (past and present), or New York City landmarks such as the Brooklyn Bridge.

Following the activity, stick around to enjoy the many family-friendly parts of Waterfront with children as young as one to:

  • Dress up like the women welders of the Brooklyn Navy Yard in WWII.
  • Touch and smell goods, like cochineal bugs and coffee beans, which passed through Empire Stores when it was a busy warehouse.
  • Use our Brooklyn waterfront magnet board to design your own city.
  • Film videos of yourself traveling back in time.
  • Color a Brooklyn waterfront themed postcard to mail to family & friends
