  • Our boys like to collect badges from the Junior Ranger program implemented by the National Park Service. We were in New York City, but did not want to pay and wait to go all the way to the Statue of Liberty.

There are benches here and a couple of places to sit and enjoy an outdoor lunch/picnic. There is also a carousel with a fish theme vs the usual horse/animal theme.
