South Street Seaport:
Enjoy spectacular harbor views aboard the South Street Seaport Museum's historic 1885 schooner Pioneer
Pioneer was originally built in Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania in 1885 to carry sand mined near the mouth of the Delaware Bay to an iron foundry in Chester, Pennsylvania. She was re-rigged as a schooner ten years later when the sloop rig lost favor, primarily for economic reasons—the large single sail took more crew members to handle than the smaller sails of the two-masted rig.

Or Sail on the 1930 tug W.O. Decker,
The wooden tugboat W.O. Decker was built in Long Island City, Queens in 1930 for the Newtown Creek Towing Company. The W. O. Decker, is the perfect venue for intimate celebrations of up to twelve people. Pack a picnic lunch or dinner for an excursion you'll never forget. Explore the hidden corners of New York Harbor’s working waterfront on our four- and six-hour tug travels excursions aboard the Decker.

The Children's Museum of the Arts:
The Children's Museum of the Arts provides stimulating, interactive exhibitions and programs for children under ten years old, encouraging them to develop their full creative potential through the visual and performing arts.
The CMA is like an art studio for kids. The exhibits are actually workspaces where children can experiment with creating their own art and there are plenty of materials for sculpting and making collages. Everything in the museum is cut to half size, so parents might feel a little cramped.
The CMA is a good place to go if you’re visiting New York City with young children. With all of the different exhibits for children to play with, a stop at the CMA could last several hours. DAILY INTERACTIVE EXHIBITS
1) Creative Play Area is designed for children five and under, and includes the Art House for slide viewing, the WEE (Wondrous, Experimenting and Exploring) Art Station, and other interactive exhibits.
2) The Artist’s Studio is designed for children over five, and is reminiscent of a working artist’s studio. Children find daily art projects that encourage problem solving and exploration of a variety of artistic materials. The Artist’s Studio also welcomes artists from the community to work side-by-side with children.
3) The Actor’s Studio offers costumes, musical instruments and story starters to encourage character development and expression of ideas through acting.
4) The Ball Pond is designed as a kinesthetic experience for all children to allow movement and motor skill play. It is a cushioned area filled with large, brightly colored physioballs. The surrounding environment evokes the feeling of being surrounded by water through the color, light and texture of materials used. Often used as a warm-up activity, the Ball Pond allows children to get comfortable in the Museum.
5) Magnetic Masterpieces are reproductions of famous artworks, cut into magnetic puzzle pieces, and displayed for children to arrange. These large-format puzzles focus on the three themes of portraiture, landscape, and abstraction, and showcase artists of diverse age, gender, and race. Information about the artist and the era in which he/she lived is available, and this activity has proven to be a successful method for parents and children to talk about art.
