From sea to shining skyscrapers! Battery Park City is sandwiched between the building canyon of Broadway and the mouth of the mighty Hudson River. After a quick tour of the Museum’s gallery and its historic photographs of the lower Manhattan skyline, we will walk around the Museum’s block to point to skyscrapers that date from as early as 1900 to today, then continue around the park to view the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Then we’ll create a group drawing of a skyline in colored chalk on the sidewalk inspired by the buildings we see around us! Recommended for Pre-K-5th grade.
This program meets at the Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl. and is held principally outdoors. The gallery will be accessible: masks are required indoors. For outdoor activities, we follow current NYS guidelines.
You must reserve a place for your child/family through the Eventbrite button. Every child should be accompanied by a parent/guardian. The maximum number of households per program is 20. In the event of bad weather, the rain date will be Saturday, June 26. We will notify you via Eventbrite.
Family programs are free! Reservation priority is given to Skyscrapers Museum members and residents of Battery Park City. Summer programs are supported by a Community Partnership with the Battery Park City Authority.
