Welcome to Seaport Kids
Welcome to Seaport Kids

From the cobblestones to the pier, the Seaport District is a playground for all ages. But it’s especially fun for our little locals and pint-sized visitors. Which is why we’ve developed Seaport Kids — a way to make sure families get the most out of their time in the neighborhood. From special events and parties designed just for kids to children’s menus and kid-friendly perks, there’s something here for all ages.

Welcome, Seaport Kids. Here’s a taste of what we’ve made just for you.

Play & Glow

Through April 20

There’s always some form of art to discover in the Seaport District, and this winter’s featured installation is one of our most popular yet. Come and play on our interactive, glowing see saws, Wave-Field, Variation O, created by CS Design and Lateral Office. Once set in motion, the see saws break into song, making for a fully immersive experience.

Explore Local History

Open daily

Kids can discover the rich history of the Seaport District at the South Street Seaport Museum, which hosts regular educational programs and exhibitions of artifacts and ephemera from its collection. Kids can also tour the museum’s historic ships, and sail on them in New York Harbor during the summer. Bowne & Co., Stationers, is a part of the museum, too, and offers a unique range of books, gifts and curiosities that kids will love—as well as the chance to take part in letterpress production on historic machines. Admission to the museum is free for children under 8 years.

Warm Up with Free Hot Chocolate

Daily at Malibu Farm

Exploring the Seaport in the winter calls for some fortification. Bring the kids to Malibu Farm for a meal and each child in your party will receive a free hot chocolate.

Salon Parties at PrimpNYC

Little beauties deserve some pampering, too — and at PrimpNYC, a kids’ birthday party becomes a full salon experience, with mini blowouts, braid stations, princess makeup and pink satin robes. Private parties are available for up to 8 children.
